P.S., don't forget that the City of Vancouver is at least ONE BILLION DOLLARS in DEBT ... !!! That is $1,000,000,000.00 dollars. With a city population around 675,000, that means every single citizen of Vancouver including babies owes $1,481.00 or so. By comparison, the City of Richmond has ONE BILLION DOLLARS in the bank, and the City of Burnaby has ONE BILLION DOLLARS in the bank. NO DEBT. Maybe the idiots in Vancouver could take courses in fiscal management from them.
Yet the fiscal mis-managers in City Hall continue to piss away money on parklets, traffic calming, roundabouts and curb extensions, the retarded anti-suicide fences on bridges, destroying vehicle circulation with bike lanes and road closures, painting green and red fields on the roads to indicate something to somebody (even the police don't know what some of that shit means), and of course the totally unnecessary (but politically correct) rainbow crosswalks on Davie Street (while letting every other painted line in the city erode away). Don't forget how much it's costing to name LANES and put up more stupidly needless signage. And don't forget how they fucked up free parking in the West End and spent millions on installing grossly-complicated parking meters that will never pay for themselves.
Let's put it another way: when was the last time you saw city workers doing something that was actually necessary?
