Because of accounting and budgets? School budget belongs to VSB, hospital belongs to Coastal. Besides the event was originally sponsored. Just like if the makerspace out of money, doesn't mean you are out of money etc etc.

If cancelling an event like this can make money magically appear in the coffers of VSB and Costal Health.. Greece might want to take note.

I am sure the police and city support workers who will be working would have appreciated the overtime, especially on a weekend.

If you're irate on a Sunday morning before 11 AM you have bigger problems in life than people doing yoga on a bridge.


Those protesters can get fucked. If those pricks can protest a healthy event yet not self-organize to clean up litter on the downtown east east side they're proving that trolls exist in real life and they just want to shit on anything good while never doing anything positive themselves.

shit like this is what makes this city better. you want a nice and quiet city with no community events? live on an isolated island or something. Vancouver's a city with its own character, shit like this builds character. Most of all, you live in downtown? you have no problems with marathons and parades closing the streets for half the day, but a problem with a bridge closure when most people in/out of downtown at 4am on a Sunday are shitfaced in a cab?

Didn't know driving across Granville Bridge instead of Burrard would throw off your entire Fathers Day.

Yes but Burrard Street bridge is city property.

Hence I pointed out only Vancouver city for school and hospitals. The province distributes money to the relevant geographic authorities.

Again the money has been budgeted for fiscal years, if there are projected short fall, it might happen. I can't see how cancelling or putting on an event will affect budgeted items (unless they are really incompetent). As I say, if you can make money appear and disappear due to putting or cancelling events and affected a published budget, I am pretty sure there is a Nobel prize for Economics waiting for you.

LOL at all you butthurt sore losers.

Go cry into your into your organic soy lattes, no one else cares.

FYI I have no problem with marathons and parades (even if they are corporate sponsored) because they're not half-assed attempts to curry favor (excuse the pun) with a foreign power and corporate interests.

Lol, I was actually opposed to this event as well, however at least I can see that it would serve ALOT of people. anytime you can get a free family-friendly event that is pretty unique, for only $150k, I can see the merit in it. And that $150k pretty much goes directly to people's wages in Vancouver.

btw, hosting it at a park, or other venue would cost just as much. you still need to hire the same amount of people -- flag people to direct traffic, clean-up crew, people to place banners, port-o-potties, police enforcement, etc. Not like those costs magically disappear. I do believe that corporate sponsorship should cover it 100% if possible though.

Q: Why did the hipster burn his mouth?

A: Because he drank quintuple shot fair-trade americanos with organic vegan soy milk before it was cool.

That's because hipsters suck the cool out of everything, chew it up, and spit it out before moving on to ruin the next trend.

BTW, your little sister wants her jeans back.

Chill brahs! So much negativity is killing the chi. Wooo saaaa...

Let's all relax and debate this like gents over a basket of yam fries and micro-brewed pale ales.

And for 2015, its organic cane sugar with your americano. I know because a few of my caucasian commuter cyclists friends are thinking of opening a cafe in Chinatown with asian influence in the name to pay homage to the neighbourhood. Woo Chee Wong Cafe Haus will be up and running as soon as the cement dries around the bicycle racks.
