Christy Clark trolls under the Burrard Bridge

So you may or may not have heard of the plan to close the Burrard Bridge for a Yoga class.

Only in Vancouver? Burrard Bridge to close for mass yoga class - British Columbia - CBC News

Well people are rightly P-O'd and have even started a protest seeing as how it falls under National Aboriginal Day as well as Father's Day)
https://www.straight.com/blogra/4690...e-yoga-closure

And now this. The mastermind behind it all is trolling British Columbians now.
Christy Clark tweet calls out 'yoga haters' over Burrard Bridge backlash - British Columbia - CBC News

So, why don't we throw our hat into the ring...how about a RS car meet on the 21st as well?

I hate the fact $150k of tax dollars is going to this. MSP premiums keep going up, translink is crying for more money, VSB is talking about closing schools, oh but wait here's $150k for yoga on the bridge. Priorities are all screwed up.

If they want to do it, 100% of the cost should be taken on by Lululemon or other sponsors. That's how the private sector works.

it would cost $4 million for a vote on spending the $150k, and at the end they won't be able to count up the votes due to unknown reasons.

No kidding, eh? Who would want to practise yoga on a stretch of hot, uncomfortable pavement. When Vancouver has so many beautiful parks with large stretches of green space that is perfect for that kind of thing.

Christy Crunch is awful when it comes to trying to create a positive public image to British Columbians.

Who is Her PR guy? Bieber's agent??

Her stupid tweet, which she thinks is self-deprecating humor, just gives me another reason not to vote for the Corporate Liberals.

Corporate Crusty, why did you schedule this huge yoga orgy on Father's Day??

Yeah, yeah, the bridge is closed from 4am to 11am on June 21st. However, I'm sure that there are some fathers and sons/daughters in the Lower Mainland who could use the Burrard Bridge for travelling while they spend some quality time together.

Dumbass Christy puts her foot in her mouth AND types up stupid tweets.

I hope that there is pouring rain on the Burrard street bridge (only from 4am to 11am) to rain on that Yoga parade.

Lululemon should do some product promotion by giving out free yoga stretch pants to hot girls for the yoga.

Then drones can take some video footage of some eye candy.

As long as they only hand out pants up to size L, that's cool with me

dont forget the "sponsors" are two big liberal party contributors, lululemon and altagas. theyre contributing a fraction of the cost the rest of which is borne by taxpayers.

so were basically subsidizing an ad for lululemon and altagas. while also inconveniencing ourselves in the process. big article about it in the province, makes my blood boil

All this hate for Christy Clark and deep down inside, she doesn't give a fuck about the haters. She's having a yoga day and if you object, you can kindly go fuck yourself.

In BC you can make all the campaign promises in the world (LNG, education etc.) but it takes forever for any process to be completed. BC has so many whiners and we give each of them a microphone. With the expected resistance from First Nations, the LNG was a great promise and a great way to throw around big numbers for tax revenue but it will never see any fruit in her term. Same with education reform and its expected appeals. Delay, delay, delay... The foundation has been laid, but it will be up to the next gov't to deal with the garbage.

By then, she'll be finish out her term as a Premier, retire nice and early in her life while collecting a fat pension. All this from a former radio host.

To the outdoor soccer fields of B.C. Place for a counter yoga meet and with solidarity to the first nations gatherings. We should crowd fund a cook out of nutritious lamb bones soup for the DTES needy.

You do all realize, International Day of Yoga was created by the UN, not the BC Liberals, right? The place may have been chosen by Crispy, but not the date.

It's also Father's Day, Car Free Day, and Summer Solstice. So, if we're going to rank who's being disrespectful to whom, the general pecking order should be Yogis < Pedestrians < Aboriginals < Fathers < The Fucking Solar System. I think solstice has this one by a few billion years, and the ONLY ones getting pissed off or feeling disrespected in all this should be the Druids and Wiccans (and maybe astronomers).

I'd think the various Car Free Day locations would be more fitting. Everyone's worried about them closing a single bridge for a few hours while most people are still sleeping in, meanwhile 15 blocks of Commercial Drive and 21 blocks of Main Street are being shut down the whole fucking day and well into the evening.

Edit: No, I'm not pro-Libs or pro-Crispy... I'm anti-stupid, and this subject is just brimming with it. Most frightening thing of all though, is that CharlesInCharge has probably the most intelligent post in this thread so far (well, except this one, of course).

Further edit: the real irony of it all, is people getting so worked up over a practice that's supposed to be calming...

It's also Father's Day...but all the reports i've seen on the issue on the news made no mention of that


Christy is going to be BCs leader for awhile, thanks to all the ignorant voters out there, so to launch the attack campaign now is a bit slow/late i'd rather just ignore it all as it just gets me PO'd

And then we also have some hipster yogis (what a gay fucking word) who won't participate because one of the sponsors is Altagas. Just what the fuck is Christy Cunt doing?

lol, so I hate that they are closing down the bridge, but meh, whatever. The city is the one that agreed to it, as the bridge belongs to them. But of course now that there is backlash, of course they say they don't support it ...

BUT, I think this troll post is hilarious. I agree with Soundy -- the car free days on major thoroughfares throughout the entire day are much worse.

Face it, Vancouver is just plain old fucked. Everyone in it thinks they are the centre of the universe, and that their shit matters more than everyone elses.

Yes, i'm a Vancouverite, and I don't care what any of you think because I know i'm right.

It's not the event it's the location and the cost of hosting it at said location that's the problem. If the city of Vancouver wants to spend 150K to close down a bridge that's there problem but when it's provincial tax dollars that's when people start having problems.
