But also kind of glad we didn't lose any of Bannerman Park to expand the Colonial Building. And I'm not sure I'd like having the government so close to downtown. Not sure why I guess that's just what I'm used to now, like having trees behind houses but not in front lol
I actually love the way that the New Brunswick legislature is worked into downtown Fredericton. It's not much bigger than Colonial Building and the additions/adjacent buildings to either side are attarctive and not very intrusive either. The whole thing kind of functions as a green space and marks the east end to the downtown commercial area.

Seeing what they have and what we have, I can't help but think that Confederation building is over-the-top and much bigger than we should need.
