I do not know why The Water Molecule, a 1967 sculpture by Derek Costello of a water molecule down to the nuclei and electrons, was ever apparently controversial. I am glad that it is in a public space, poised in the Rosberg Family Park just a couple of blocks south of the bus and train stations on Erie Street at Queen, visible to at least some visitors.
