The majority of people interviewed by the Corran Journal say that it is "thumbs down" for the new border crossing gates. The new gates, that were erected by the Regional Municipality of Manitou, GCG at a cost of 260 prims, replace the old wooden gates that formerly marked the border crossings.
The new shiny red steel gates are designed to symbolize the progression of industry in the community but most people do not see it that way. "The dang things are ugly" said one passerby, "is it supposed to look so evil?" said another.
"We believe that, like anything new, people will come to accept the new gate design as a symbol of advancement in our community" Winter Silversmith CAO Manitou Tourism told the Corran Journal today. The old wooden gates were a freebie and had degraded over time due to their environment. "The new gates needed to be constructed of a material that would withstand our climate changes and last for some time" Winter said.
The border gates will be erected at all region crossing paths and roadways throughout the continent of Manitou, GCG.
