Kingston is riven with Yes/No battles – the Third Crossing/The Capitol/The Wellington Street Extension/The Airport Extension –so when it comes to the future of the Pen, surely there could be compromise?
Enough can be preserved (some must be, architecturally) to satisfy those who want the history and the tours. And surely, enough of the walls and modern structures can go, to allow a home for the Marine Museum, CORK and a view of the water?
Mid-rise Condos may be a step too far beside Portsmouth village, but can we not reach an amicable compromise for once? The Pen has seen enough fights already, let’s not have another.
