After a quiet period of some months, the ugly business of Gregor Robertsons’ cronies’ wet dream of developing profit-driven condo tower blocks all along Broadway financed on the backs of a $3billion dollar subway to nowhere, is gurgling to the surface once again.
Translink are holding “Public Consultations for the Millenium Line Extension to Arbutus” at three locations on three dates:
- January 28, 1:00pm to 5:00pm, at Douglas Park Community Centre;
- January 31, 4:00pm to 8:00pm at the Croatian Cultural Centre;
- February 1, 4:00pm to 8:00pm at Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral
From their format and timings, I am guessing these are display panels, plus yellow stickies plus a questionaire affair — not a dialog or genuine collaborative discussion. But we should always attend these things and make our marks whenever and wherever we can.
I wrote my views opposing a subway some time ago, and I still stand by those statements today.
