The Wellington Hills Sports Complex? No, it's NOT a done deal!

It's too late

And it's really is a shame.  

The Powers That Be had the perfect opportunity to leave a Memorial - a monument (more or less) to a fading time. It could've been a gift to the good people of the Greater Wellington Hills Area (including all the Costco shoppers).

They could have left this for us as a token of their Honoring the Past with their promise for Better Tomorrows.

But why, you ask?
Because there's precedence, that's why.  

For example:

The Greeks left us lots of ruins

The Japanese kept this one as a memorial and prayer

The Germans kept theirs as both art and a remembrance

And once upon a time, young Brits knew how to celebrate a concrete wasteland

ps: write someone ... a newspaper, the president, the Historic Preservation Commission, congress-people, a council-people, your attorney - anyone - and tell 'em, "SAVE OUR HISTORY!"
