    My husband and I met at the Mendel on our first date. And yes, that's how the gallery is, has always been called in short : the Mendel. I would also be furious if I were the grand-daughter. A name change would be disrespectful.
    Money....changes our history....
    Sask Place will forever be Sask Place, and do will the Centennial Auditorium.
    As a Saskatoonian, (not....politician) hear my voice: respect over money!
    Historical preservation as the top priority (and everything is in a name). It would absolutely be sad to see the name change.... I hope, the people making decisions....really reflect on their impact.
    The Mendel.... must keep it's identity!
    Good luck, and sending e-support :)

    This White Elephant is nothing more than a vanity program for Atch and his accomplices. The original, beautiful Mendel, loved and enjoyed by thousands, could, if necessary, have been lengthened, widened, or heightened, at a fraction of the cost of this monstrosity.
