I think CiC needs to run all his posts by Tic Tac for translation. They'd probably make more sense.

I think its a bs event. For all the reasons already posted but how much do you guys think it would have cost to host this on one of our beaches or parks? Prob the same or more. Cleaning up a park in downtown is no easy feat. The litter the butts the needles etc...

It would cost way less. Garbage clean up already happens at parks and you would not have to pay for traffic diversion.

Yesterday a Liberal party member come to my store to ask it I wanted to sign up again for the Liberal party because my membership had lapsed. I laughed. Don't think so.

Burrard Bridge petition would turn city landmark into a pride rainbow



A bid to colour Vancouver's Burrard Bridge into the biggest pride rainbow in the world has gathered hundreds of supporters.

"This needs to happen," wrote Suzanne Lindsay of Vancouver, in support of a huge rainbow installation on one of the city's oldest' landmarks.

A petition started by "Rainbow Warrior" on Change.org already has more than 800 people signed up to urge the City of Vancouver to "show your love and support for your city, and the LGBTQ community" in a colourful way.

"We're going to build the biggest pride rainbow ever," claims the website.

The goal is 1,000 signatures. Those who signed the petition say the change would signal how the world sees Vancouver.

"Because homophobia is one of the greatest plagues in this world. Showing acceptance and embracing differences is a step forward in our society," Israel Delage wrote.

The hope is to unveil the rainbow July 30th in the middle of Pride Week, officially making Vancouver "somewhere over the rainbow."

Is anyone disrespecting the natives with this?
What about gay natives?
What about gay yogis?

Hey, I know, they could build the rainbow by strapping different color yoga mats to the bridge!

Yeah because the smoking and heroin use would drastically increase in parks during this yoga event.

Get it right, you heathen - it's LGBTQ now. At least until someone else feels those terms don't include them and they need to add another letter.

I'm assuming he means cleanup prior to the event so it's lush and beautiful for the photo ops and yoga yuppies.

If they are footing the bill and they are not closing the bridge I see no problem with it.

Dear natives: THIS is exactly why white people are tired of your shit.
99.99% of all Aboriginal people don't give a fuck about the fact that another event coincides with "Aboriginal Day," and I'd be willing to bet that that includes the Grand Chief, he's only taking the alignment of the dates as another reason to rally against it. I don't think the logic behind that is any different from the logic behind much of the myriad of other points of opposition that have been brought up, particularly those by other hyperpolitical groups that feel the need to respond in protest to absolutely every act by another political group.

I'm gonna design a straight white male flag and petition to cover the Granville bridge with it. Equality, right?

Fuck this. Seriously I've had enough with gay rights being shoved in my face wherever I go. Why can't people just go live their lives quietly and just be themselves without having to force it in my face.

Seriously? 2 weeks notice to close a bridge for a few hours is quite reasonable. It's not the end of the world if you can't ride a bike or drive across that bridge before 11am when you can go east 5 minutes and get on the Granville Bridge to get to downtown.

If this was a workday and closed the bridge on those hours, there's a right to be outraged.

I don't want to sound insensitive, but National Aboriginal Day is hardly considered an important day for traffic. They planned massive events in the downtown/kits area right?

I don't think the UN purposely planned June 21 so it can mess with lord ol mightly Fathers Day which is always the 3rd sunday of June and just so happens it overlapped.

Quote:
Fun Runs/Marathons also recoup the majority of their costs through entry fees and corporate sponsorships. Plus, it makes sense to RUN across a bridge. How does it make sense to put a yoga mat on a dirty asphalt while doing downward dog?
I do have to agree the majority of the cost should be borne by the sponsors. Having said that, it's an event to celebrate a healthy activity, so I rather see our tax dollars spent on that than other bs that happens in Vancouver.

Quote:
Oh and please, if this event determines whether or not Vancouver is defined as a no-fun city, then we're even more pathetic that I thought. "Fun" is not, under my definition, government sanctioned corporate publicity stunts.
This event itself doesn't determine whether we have fun or not, but seeing how events get politicized so easily because of general dislike of gov't just shows how pathetic we are. We don't live in a world where everyone's needs and wants get catered to. LIVE WITH IT. Most large events are government sanctioned and corporate sponsored anyways (look at all those little logos). I guess you hate the HONDA Celebration of Light, the ROGERS Santa Clause Parade etc? Oh nevermind, they have been around for so long, it's okay to keep them going because it's a tradition. So we can't start new events? This wasn't even called ULEMON'S Yoga Day.

If you don't like Christy Clark or the Liberals, don't vote for them. Apparently more people in this province disagree with that.

you can apply the same logic to the holiday spirit around Christmas time then

they say those who are vocal against LGBT are likely closet homosexuals
