MOTION

The following motion was put forward by Commissioner Hundal:

WHEREAS the Fight HST campaign is a legitimate, democratic citizens' initiative of public expression and action that is officially recognized by Elections BC; and

WHEREAS the Vancouver Park Board has written a public letter to British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA) voicing concerns that the introduction of the HST may lead to decreased public use of recreation services;  and

WHEREAS the introduction of the HST may have a direct negative impact on the Vancouver Park Board's revenues; and

WHEREAS the Vancouver Park Board limits the use of Community Centre lobby space for public gatherings due to operational and safety concerns;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT Vancouver Park Board grant the Fight HST campaign temporary access to all community centre lobbies for the remaining duration of its campaign.
