A crew from Delta BC is in Terrace this weekend installing the bright white roof fabric on the new Bandshell/stage in George Little Park.
Dale Dhoat with Cover Star Structures has arrived with a crew of three others to drape the material over the newly constructed roof.
Dhoat states this material is the very best available and is even better than the covering used on the Dome Stadium in Vancouver. It is called PVDF, Polyvinyl Dine Fluoride which, Dhoat says has an expected 25 year life.
The first part, the center section, is expected to be finished today. It is a beautiful day in Terrace and if the wind doesn't pick up the entire project should be completed for next week.

There was nothing wrong with the bandshell stage we had that a power wash and couple of coats couldn't fix. It was a shelter that performers where protected on three sides from the elements and the stage was higher so crowds could see the performers. The new one will have wind blowing right through it and I pity the performers that have to put up with inclement weather. The volunteers that put up the old one must be really pissed. I would be.
Can we see how the money was used??

I heard that this thing cost our town 1 Million dollars. What company built this and who is the owner??How did this come to pass? What justification was there for doing this thing? Was the old stage in disrepair or dangerous? And why so much money?? WE only need the thing for a few events each year. This makes no sense. That is, unless you consider corruption may be involved in the building of this crap. I am not accusing anyone, I just suspect there was something funny about this contract. I'm allowed to be suspicious and ask questions, yes?
