You have got to be fucking kidding me! This is practically the only major event left in Vancouver, this is our big show, our big summer festival! Honestly to say i am pissed off is an understatement. The government really should fund any shortfalls to keep this event alive. Honestly, what am i to tell my Japanese friends in the coming years?
Friend "So when is the big firework festival in Vancouver, you told me so much about it!"
Me "Sorry, we don't do that anymore."
Friend "Ok, but there is still an amusement park we can go to right?"
Me "Umm, no, it has been converted into a nature park, but there is still a roller-coaster...that should last 90 seconds."
Friend "How many people live in metro-Vancouver?"
Me "Around 2.3 million, even more when you consider the close proximity of Abbotsford and area"
Friend "Huh, are they all retired?"
Well at least al the condo owners will be happy, no more noise in the summer
Also on the bright side i guess if the C-Line opens in early August we don't have to worry about overcrowding
See this is the problem with Vancouver, it is not that it is a no fun city, but that it is actually becoming a less fun city! Instead of gaining entertainment venues and festivals, we are losing them! The exact opposite of what should be happening in a growing city that is emerging on the world stage.
Just throw 5 fucking rings around the barge and throw some Olympic money at it!
