Why late debate on torn down Carmen?

I DO NOT want to get too embroiled in the debate regarding the demolishing of the building in Rockley called Carmen which used to house the Lewis Drug Mart and other business until recent times.

But to those persons who have been writing to the press complaining about its demolition: Why have you waited until after the building was torn down to start your public debate of condemnation on the subject?

Was there not a large sign showing an artist’s impression of the proposed new building at the front of the property for several months prior to its demolition?

Clearly it was obvious for even a blind man on a trotting horse to see that the old building would have to come down.

Could you not have sought to find out more about the proposed development, and the pros and cons, prior to the demolition, or were you just lying in wait so you could make a big deal out of the whole issue?

It is this sort of thing that I have issues with. We are a reactionary society and not proactive. We habitually wait until the horse is out of the barn and running away before we think about closing the door.
