If the Bayers Lake location is part of the work to demolish the Centennial Building and VG Campus, which is how it's been described by the government, then it might be reasonable to expect that clinics are moving FROM the VG/Centennial TO the industrial park. Otherwise, they're just bloating the system.

If this is explicitly the case, then this is explicitly a disaster. The VG has to go - no question, but the right solution should have been to double the size of the Infirmary by building on the old high school site next door.

If the intent were to duplicate the Cobequid Centre for the mainland south of the city, that would be understandable. This would allow residents of this part of the city to access routine outpatient services without having to venture onto the peninsula. Surely though they could have found someplace better to put it.......
