Park Board on
Monday July 10, 2006 @ 7 PM
Park Board meeting will be held at the
TROUT LAKE COMMUNITY CENTRE
3350 Victoria Drive & East 15th Avenue
PHONE THE PARK BOARD BEFORE MONDAY AT NOON TO SPEAK ON MONDAY AT
TEL (604) 257-8451. Make sure you let them know which agenda
items you would like to address.
Items in the agenda include 2 Park Board Staff reports to
Aquarium revitalization and Expansion Proposal: Technical Review
and Consultation Process
Parks Control Bylaw Review (Dolphin Bylaw)
Basically, the consultation process is a farce and it should be
done as a public referendum in the next election, not by a public
relations consultant paid with aquarium mega-dollars throughout
the summer when only tourists are around. If the board approves
this process, ii will show that the park board is in the
aquarium's pocket, especially since the chair of the Park Board is
an aquarium staff member!
The bylaw "review" is just a way to package it the way the
aquarium wants, when the only thing the public should be asked,
again, in a public referendum vote, is whether Vancouverites want
more whales and dolphins in Stanley Park. Remind the Commissioners
that the bylaw's original intent was to stop the importation of
captive whales and dolphins - because that's the only way to go!
If you can't come to the Park Board on Monday to speak, PLEASE
e-mail a short message to the Park Board TODAY:
Thanks for helping the whales
Please send the Vancouver Park Board Commissioners a message. Tell
them to stop the Vancouver Aquarium from importing more whales and
dolphins into Stanley Park.
The Vancouver Park Board
More to come......
