There was some marvelously public outrage this weekend over the City’s plans for rezoning in Marpole. They have many of the same issues over process and lack of consultation as we have been fighting here in Grandview-Woodland. It was great to have the Marpole folks at our GWAC meeting last week, and to see them in action this weekend is inspiring.
On a different plane, my letter regarding Bob Ransford’s pro-development ideas finally made it into the Vancouver Sun today (8th letter), and Jonathan Baker has responded with much greater intellectual vigour than I did against last week’s pro-tower screed by Michael Goldberg.
Let’s hope the City recognizes that these protests are not going away!
