According to the CBC, the Squamish First Nation is going ahead with plans to erect large billboards on reserve land near the Burrard Bridge (and the Lions Gate Bridge and Second Narrows). The huge signs, measuring 36 feet by 10 feet, will not be subject to the municipal bylaws that govern billboard placement because they’re on reserve land. All because the Band needs the advertising money to replace government funding that has been pulled. What the f*@#? The Squamish Band is still waiting for environmental approval from Ottawa before it puts up the signs. They better shut this down or I’ll have Mikey climbing the pole nightly with a spraycan and instructions on how to spell K-I-T-S-I-L-A-N-O-.-C-A.
