As a thirty-year resident in Hastings Sunrise, Vancouver, I am writing to support the Hastings Community Association and the neighbourhood, membership-based community centre.
I have followed this issue closely and while the details seem infinite, what is clear is that this is a struggle for power and control over our historic community centre by the Parks Board.
One size does not fit all, and I believe that the Parks Board has the ability to resolve this dispute and continue a Joint Operating Agreement that has mutual agreement and benefit to all.
The only question is: Do you have the will?
I hope that you do and I will be in attendance on February 8 to observe. I voted for you with high expectations. Please do not let down our community.
