Convention central 

Convention central

So mayor Peter Kelly thinks the proposed new convention centre is a no-brainer ("The convention centre rescue plan" by Tim Bousquet, April 1). I didn't know that no-brainer meant colossal white elephant.

What a waste of prime real estate and tax dollars! The proposed design reminds me of an updated Scotia Square (already a dead zone). This oversized idea should have its own space, like on the waterfront. But do it without taxpayers' money. After all, if it's such a great business idea, it should fly on its own.

As for the prime real estate downtown, it should be used smartly, imaginatively and organically. In ways that will draw Haligonians to the area.
