They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.

It was an incredible that that the construction of this new parking lot at Milton District hospital should occur right in front of the three labour and delivery rooms of Obstetrical unit. There are actually only three such L&D rooms. Cars pulling in would have front row view of the birthing units giving a whole new meaning to "drive in" features. In addition to the loss of privacy for expectant mothers, several moderate size fruit trees were destroyed in the construction of this parking lot (cue: Joni Mitchell's Big Yellow Taxi). There also use to be a warren of rabbits on the grounds too...likely chased away by the new housing developments.
