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 7PM.
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 oppose:

1. Aquarium revitalization and Expansion Proposal: Technical Review and Consultation Process

2. 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:

Commissioners pbcomment@vancouver.ca
