The Pandemic, Climate Change, and the Parking Garage

On our walk to the waterfront yesterday we noticed that the parking garage at the Delta Prince Edward hotel is now protected with a semi-permanent barrier of sandbags

The hotel is closed indefinitely due the pandemic, so presumably this was installed preemptively to prevent staff from needing to be on-site in the event of heavy rain, which has been known in past to flood the basement garage.

So this is a piece of public art that testifies both to the pandemic, and also to climate change.

Would this also put the only public EV charging stations in downtown Charlottetown out of commission?
