Bravo to Shawn Tester for his articulate plea for Winnipeg's responsibility as a compassionate city, and for compassion for The Forks lands (A little compassion for Forks lands, July 26).

We are in a rut. Our neurons are so firmly attached to the altar of the almighty dollar that the Garden of Compassion proposal almost seems an unworthy venture for The Forks.

We need to throw the switch, get off the old track, and follow the path of compassion and healing.
