Park Board Chair Jasper has another change of heart
We caught this report a couple nights ago by GlobalTV's Marisa Thomas, and it looks like the public may prevail in spite of Vision Vancouver's ham-fisted efforts to close this iconic attraction. Bloedel Conservatory is experiencing a revival thanks to a little marketing and some hard work by supporters. It's hopefully a real lesson for politicos to be careful where you wield your axe.
It's somewhat amusing to see the Park Board chair Aaron Jasper, aka Captain Flip-Flop, jumping in front of the cameras in support of the Conservatory after so vigorously defending his earlier decision to shut it down. But that's how some politicians roll, as they say.
We've been provided details about the upcoming fundraiser being organized by the Friends of Bloedel Conservatory for the evening of April 28th, at 7:30pm. Tickets are only $20 for an evening featuring live music, "tropical" chocolates and champagne. It should be a fun evening for all. Contact Hobb's Gift Store for tickets by calling 604-261-5998.
