Restoring a "Century Home" called Canada

Restoring Canada

If we set out to restore a Century Home called Canada, would we spend all our planning time discussing the shingles and window-frame paint or would we first examine the footings, the integrity of the structure and (based on the new uses & needs of the new occupants) endeavour to preserve what's precious, conserve the parts that are perfectly good and adapt what's outmoded to current service?

Since 1965, Canada has been on the wrong path.

We trusted government to do the right thing - they didn't.

We trusted that they wouldn't overspend. They did.

We trusted they wouldn't promise what they couldn't deliver.

We were betrayed and our expectations dashed.
