What’s missing from this picture? The security guard post at CBC Charlottetown is history. After it was installed shortly after 9/11, every visitor to the station had to identify themselves and sign in. For regular visitors it was like a security guard was posted at the front door of a friend’s house.
Thankfully cooler heads have prevailed, perhaps realizing that the cost and energy expended by trying to product producers, reporters, hosts and technicians from terrorist threats wasn’t a worthwhile effort. When I visited today, and glided in the front door unimpeded, it felt like coming home again.
