Even if it wasn't on the same scale as the Halifax project so much more could have been put into the St. John's Convention Center expansion - hotel, residential, office, retail.
Funny, the same thing was said to me when I was home visiting for Christmas, but hasn't St. John's only built for the present and not for the future? Facing reality this convention centre expansion could be deemed a complete total waste of money in 10-15 years.
