Immigration Place to replace bridge

By Blingerific - 31 March 2010 3

The ABC brings us news that the Immigration Bridge has been dropped for something less imposing. Common sense prevailing in Canberra? What th’?

The objections regarding the immigration bridge mostly weren’t because people were against the idea of recognising immigration, rather the creation of monstrosity and unnecessary bridge over the lake. In the right place and the right design, it shouldn’t be a problem.

Lets hope our taxpayer dollars aren’t contributing to this!

“This will not be a static monument in the traditional sense but instead be a living space where people can see, hear and experience stories from the immigrant community.”

Mr O’Donnell says it could also be used to hold citizenship ceremonies”

On Australia Day last year the Governor General opened ‘Citizenship Place’ just down from Regatta Point. That particular spot was chosen as it has been the location of citizenship ceremonies for the last 25 years or so.

Why do we need an immigration place as well?

Obviously someone wants their name on a plaque.
