Dunbar Re-Vision

Big Turnout at our Town Hall Meeting – UPDATED | October 26, 2012

UPDATE – A new article in the Vancouver Courier

Our Town Hall meeting was a roaring success. We filled the hall to standing room only. Notable among the participants were current Vancouver City Councillors George Affleck, Elizabeth Ball, and Adriane Carr.

It was evident from those attending that there is STRONG opposition to the Pacific Arbour development proposal. We need to work hard to continue to apply pressure to City Hall and Pacific Arbour to stop this development from happening.

Passionate arguments followed a presentation of the methods required to make our position known with the City Hall. Additionally, speakers encouraged citizens to rally together with other resident associations to send City Hall the message that we demand to put the Community back in the Community planning process.

We encourage everyone who cares about their neighbourhood to prepare their letters to the Mayor, Council, AND Pacific Arbour.

Many volunteers stepped forward and participants donated generously .

Thank you to everyone who attended and made the evening such a success.

  1. As repeated often at the public meeting, the only thing that will stop Vancouver Vision’s continued ignoring of neighbourhhoods over development issues is if community groups join together in protest and support each other.

    To quote Benjamin Franklin after he signed the American Declaration of Independence:
    “We must all hang together, or assuredly we will all hang separately.”
