FORMER SAINT LOUIS COLLEGE IS “NATIONALLY SIGNIFICANT”: Gregory Hartnell concurs with architectural heritage experts John W. Veillette + Donald Luxton on preserving present Saint Andrew’s Elementary – Preschool in letter to T-C Editor, June 4, 2013

St. Andrew’s building nationally significant

Re: “Save art-deco building on St. Andrew’s site,” letter, May 31

Before it was known as St Andrew’s Elementary, the current art-deco building on the St. Andrew’s site was known as St. Louis College, run by the Christian Brothers of Ireland. I was a student there in the ’60s.

As a St. Louis College alumnus and a Jesuit-trained Catholic historian with a concern to see our Catholic architectural heritage preserved whenever possible, I fully concur with heritage expert John W. Veillette’s timely call to save this unique heritage school building.

Veillette notes that “it is given high marks in the survey of art-deco and moderne architecture in Victoria.”

That scholarly work was produced by another Victoria heritage expert, Donald Luxton, who wrote Capital Regional District Art Deco and Moderne, published in Victoria by the Hallmark Society in 1984.

It is my hope that the present owners pay attention to voices like those of these well-respected heritage experts, and that the Hallmark Society, St. Louis College alumni and St. Andrew’s Elementary alumni join them and other concerned citizens in encouraging the developers to save this nationally significant art deco- moderne school building to repurpose it for all Victorians.

  Before it was known as Saint Andrew’s Elementary-Preschool, the present ‘art-deco building on St. Andrew’s site’ was known as Saint Louis College, run by the Christian Brothers of Ireland, and I was a student there in the sixties.
  As a Saint Louis College alumnus, and a Jesuit-trained Catholic historian with a long-standing concern to see our Catholic architectural heritage preserved whenever realistically possible, I fully concur with heritage expert John W. Veillette’s timely call to save this unique heritage school building.
  Mr. Veillette notes that ‘it is given high marks in the survey of art-deco and moderne architecture in Victoria.’
  That scholarly work was produced by another Victoria heritage expert, Donald Luxton, who wrote ‘Capital Regional District Art Deco and Moderne,’ published in Victoria by the Hallmark Society in 1984.
  It is my sincere hope that the present owners pay attention to voices like those of these well-respected heritage experts, and that the Hallmark Society, Saint Louis College alumni and Saint Andrew’s Elementary alumni join them and other concerned citizens in encouraging the developers to save this nationally significant art deco – moderne school building to ‘repurpose’ it for all Victorians.
  If ‘bonus density’ is needed to finance seismic upgrades and this repurposing to commercial office space, the surrounding apartment buildings should not exceed six stories.

SAVE SAINT ANDREW’S SCHOOL: National Art Deco Moderne ‘historic building deserves restoration and re-purposing.

Save art-deco building on St. Andrew’s site, writes noted heritage expert

 TIMES COLONIST 

MAY 31, 2013

Re: “Redevelopment runs into traffic dilemma,” May 18.

In the discussion about the redevelopment of the St. Andrew’s School site, there seems to have been little publicity given to the importance of the landmark art deco building.

It is given high marks in the survey of art-deco and moderne architecture in Victoria, and the jog in Vancouver Street gives it high visibility. Further, it is Victoria’s only example of an art-deco school. For retention in the redevelopment, it could not be better placed on the site — a unique opportunity for branding a new complex.

This historic building deserves restoration and re-purposing. Heritage is a big part of Victoria’s national attraction.

Let us build on our success in this regard, not ignore it and waste the heritage potential. There is no second chance.

ROBERT RANDALL @ VIBRANT VICTORIA, 2010:

Here is the building shortly after construction in 1931:

Because the school will need massive seismic upgrading to be considered safe, its future is limited. It is on the heritage list but I’m not sure it’s an actual heritage building or merely heritage designated.

‘HOBO STEVE’ WAS A TARGETED HOLLYWOOD WHISTLEBLOWER: Truther Girls interview with Rockland Christian activist artist ‘Steven Shellenberger’ (nom d’artiste of Stephen Shellen)

Published May 31, 2013 by goyodelarosa

Was Stephen Shellen, star of A River Runs Through It with Brad Pitt and about forty other films, targeted by the Illuminati before he became an ex-Hollywood whistleblower exposing MK Ultra mind control of celebrities and others in the Satanic capital?

Stephen Shellen


Stephen Shellen grew up in Victoria, British Columbia where he was his high school’s star hockey player before heading north to work as a lumberjack. After catching the attention of a talent scout in Vancouver, he decided to try his hand at acting, spurred on in part by the memory of a less-than-appreciative audience during his first stage performance in junior high… See full bio »

There is no payback or credit that accrues when one comes out of this dark world and starts naming names.

So, why do some people say that this intense Rockland artist is ‘crazy’ for telling these kinds of  wild-sounding stories about being the target of years of harassment?

In fact, his life may be in more danger now than it ever was in Hollywood as he declares himself to be an enemy of the Satanic New World Order.

I say that everyone in the anti-Globalist Liberty movement needs to pay very close attention to people like Stephen Shellen, Elizabeth Nickson (author of The Monkey Puzzle Tree and Eco-Fascists), Roseanne Barr and others who talk, write and make videos about these tabu subjects, in the same way we need to pay very close attention to the countercultural narratives of those like the late great battling barrister Douglas Christie, his client Ernst Zundel, Jewish writer Paul Eisen and many others who speak out against the oppressive, nasty tyrannical ‘green’ Globalist regime which makes it a thought crime to even question the decadent Establishment’s twisted and patently false versions of history.

Zundel is still incarcerated in his native Germany for the Orwellian thought crime of so-called ‘Holocaust denial’.

Mind control comes in various guises.

In Illuminati-controlled Canada, it starts in the provincial public school system of Globalist propaganda dissemination, right from kindergarten to Grade 12 (‘K-12′).

For access to a link to one of many videos that Stephen Shellen has made recently, speaking candidly and without fear with the Truther Girls, please refer to the comments section.
