City of Victoria might be able to learn something from Richmond?
Learn how to live without a 50m pool, you mean? Like saps? Like barbarians? Like barbaric saps? (or, if you prefer, like sappy barbarians)
Minoru was mentioned in this thread back in March of 2018:
More fuel for the never-ending debate re: the ideal length for a new aquatic centre's main pool: the large pool at Richmond's new Minoru centre will be just 25m. And for $80 million (largest public expenditure in Richmond's history). Kind of an odd configuration, they'll have an 8-lane 25m pool and a 6-lane 25m pool, but the pools will be side by side rather than connected.
The following quote is from a news story entitled "Delayed Minoru pool and seniors' centre promises to be iconic":
When the facility's plans were first announced, many residents had expressed a desire for a larger, 50-metre pool. However, the extra cost for the bigger pool — $8 million — was considered prohibitive by Richmond city council.
