For the week of Dec. 10, 2023:
Vancouver’s Park Board is getting rid of a quarter of the trees in Stanley Park. (The bureaucrats blame the looper moth infestation, but they haven’t released the report that approved the job.)
Mayor Ken Sim wants to get rid of the entire elected Park Board. For economic reasons, he says.
The NDP government is getting rid of the Surrey RCMP and getting rid of most public hearings for municipal rezoning.
