  1. this is perfect example of why nanaimo is a failure

    the first thing they do with their renovations, is take away the water clock, they have no plans for the space, but its just so important to take away the water clock, and then hide it away so no one can ever see it again

    mean while the city of nanaimo is on some ludicrous public art kick and just says, hey thats great you are destroying our heritage and culture, thats great you are hiding the water clock so no one can ever see it again
    oh god we better not ask them for the the water clock as public art for the city of nanaimo

    its best just to have the water clock locked up away in a dark room, never to be seen again
