Hey, remember that giant portrait of the Queen in the Winnipeg Arena?

Apparently its sitting in a warehouse in Oshawa.. WHAT THE HECK!?!? Is there nowhere in Winnipeg we could put that piece of history? 20 Years she spent watching the Jets lose over and over again at the Winnipeg Arena. You could hardly find a more dedicated fan. Now theres a movement to put it on display in Oshawa., which is nice in the sense that it shouldn't be sitting in a warehouse, but c'mon. Is there nowhere in Winnipeg we could put that giant portrait?

I'm just disappointed. Even if you're not a fan of the monarchy, its a piece of history. Like that Andrew Carnegie portrait now hanging in the Millenium Library.

If (when) we get the Jets back, perhaps we should get that painting back as well and string it from the rafters at MTS.
