The Tower and The Tour

This morning, Maurice Guibord, one of our clutch of locally resident historians, headed a tour of Commercial Drive for the Vancouver Heritage Foundation. He had a full house of about 30 tour-ists.  If you have never taken a tour with Maurice, then you should sign up for his next. He is a charming, funny and thoroughly knowledgable tour guide presenting a really pleasurable learning experience.

His tour this morning gathered at the corner of Commercial & Venables right opposite Astorino’s, which was the perfect location for Penny and I to make a case against the huge highrise that Boffo wants to impose on that corner.  We gave a little speech, handed out pamphlets on the tower proposal, and received another two dozen signatures on the anti-tower petition.

I believe it was a positive experience for everyone, and we thank Maurice for allowing us to interupt him about this issue of vital importance to our neighbourhood.
