Do you remember that Joni Mitchell song, Big Yellow Taxi? “They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum. And they charged all the people a dollar and a half just to see ’em.”


That’s how I felt when I heard that 23 trees will be cut down if the Vancouver Aquarium is expanded. I plan on going to the next parks board meeting and expressing my views, but hopefully you will print this letter and inspire my fellow Vancouverites to join me in wanting this expansion to wait — until we ban cars in the park!
