Vancouver parks: democracy in action (not)

Further detail on the committee that introduced the parks ban, the 'consultation' they conducted, the sheer bloody size of the parks in Vancouver (3,200 acres in total) and the Parks Board's insane belief that 'there is no safe level of tobacco smoke'.

The by-line at the top of this blog is taken from Mencken: The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule. No doubt about it in this case.
