The Vancouver Courier has an article on a group of West Siders who are petitioning the to-be-elected parks board to overturn the current decision to remove all but a small part of Jericho’s historic wharf:
Since the board’s decision, the group led by Kitsilano resident Joan Bunn has gathered more than 800 signatures on a petition, which was presented to the board in July.
Is it me or does 800 sound like very few signatures? It’s not a number that has me scratch my head and think “wow, the parks board really got this wrong”. Especially when contrasted with the recent news about the 15,000 signatures that were collected to save the UBC farm.
As I said back in June, I don’t mind the current decision for the wharf; it will extend the fantastic recreational space at Jericho (paths and beach), while preserving a (small) piece of its great history.
