Help Save The Bloedel Conservatory
I can't believe it. I just found out that the Bloedel Conservatory here in Vancouver is closing its doors because of alien invasion or something. Of all the places that are going to CLOSE because of the Olympics - this is one that should have received some money to help maintain and promote it during the city wide event. I could also say something nasty about the city council but I won't because they are the best we've had in some time - maybe. Also, if you know me at all, I am not a lover of the 2010 Olympic Games. As time has gone on and the preparations have mounted, money has been spent and spent and spent, far outside of the budget. VANOC has also admitted they are way above budget and are now dipping into their emergency fund. If you live in Vancouver, who know who's pocket that is. With taxes on the rise because of the games, this is one of those situations where money has not been allocated properly. Can anyone say athlete's village?
