Earlier today, based on a suggestion from a reader, we made a modest proposal for how we could have both safety and Fed dollar savings throughout Vancouver's inland waterways.
None of that matters now.
CKWX has the story:
...Construction crews were at work over the noon hour dismantling part of the now former Kitsilano Coast Guard station.
It might be a blow to those fighting to reopen the base.
A flatbed truck towed a piece of the station away before a chainlink fence gate surrounding the station was slammed shut.
News1130 reporter Dave White watched all of it under heavy security.
A ramp connecting the station building with the docks below has been removed, they’re now inaccessible to anyone. Signage has been taken down and the station looks ghostly.
A man who appeared to be a former worker carried office supplies out of the building, but wouldn’t speak as he left...
Can someone please explain how it's not all about the land now?
Thanks to spartikus for the heads-up.
