Coles notes for those who don't pay for the record. It is recommended the city buy the BMO building on the corner of queen and king for museum expansion. The museum has to raise 10 million from private donors to facilitate a 25 million dollar potentially 5 story expansion on the site.

I didn’t realize that the museum hadn’t already purchased the property.  This needs to get done!

Would the 25 million needed include the purchase of the building? That would obviously go a long way.

The property purchase is separate from the $25 million construction and is about $3 million  by the city then donated to museum,  if I understand the article correctly.
Oh man, I would have thought it was included in the 25
UW to host series of one-act plays

Are you a fan of Shakespeare and the Stratford Festival.  If you are, there is some very good news.

The Stratford Festival is presenting a free film festival to entertain us during this period of social isolation.

The Stratford Festival has scheduled film showings around four themes that seem pertinent at this time of pandemic: 

  • Social Order and Leadership
  • Isolation
  • Minds Pushed to the Edge
  • Relationships

All were filmed live before a Stratford audience.

Eight camera angles are used.  

Each film is available for streaming from the Stratford Festival web site for three weeks.  Last night King Lear was streamed. 


I am a huge fan of Stratford but I avoid Shakespeare for a number or reasons.  Hopefully, this free streaming service will help me appreciate Shakespeare a bit more.  By the way, you can click on the play and watch it on your big screen TV if you have one.
