Great, The Weeping Cedar Woman might be coming "home". How much will this cost? Is the price from the artist still $20,000.00? How much for transport? base construction? erection? maintenance? The letter is great in wonderful descriptions of the "cultural benefits" of the project......but who's gonna pay for it? Expensive......foolishness. (the thing is ugly as sin, too)
ugly? the whole town is being made to look like a mediocre qualicum beach with nice scenery.no one seems to know excellence from the lowest common denominator: ordinary consultant crap. generic bull pucky. boring uninteresting caca. we pay for poverty of imagination and hack work. the kings new clothes is us. looks fantastic! oh god its wonderful!lets get more! make it impossible to be anything but boring!
The Cedar Woman is a Haida image that was stolen by a colonizer and brought to NuuChahNulth territory . It has no business being here except as a symbol of Tofino's disregard fir First Nations.
Friends of Clayoquot are now taking care of attracting tourism and vitalizing main st.The Tofino Chamber takes care of Eco Activism, breakfast and 3rd world countries.TT entertains the children with Sandy in their Doll house at the dot office.What's next ?? "Clayoquot Action" Sea-Doo rentals
That Weeping eyesore would look great next to the Eik street Tree with a sign "The Ugly Side of Clayoquot Logging Activism" (for the beauty, please go to Park on Main)
What constitutes a colonizer? Why is it wrong to display something from the Haida? Is it wrong to eat Poutine at Wildside because it's from Quebec?
