Of course not, but for what we have already paid the grass should be plated in gold leaf.


I don’t know you got thousands of little employees working for room and board.

Oh sure. If they work for the CoV they'll probably want a 50% raise.

I assumed that if it took nearly two years since the completion of the bridge to landscape that patch of land that they would have come up with something more than just grass. If that was the plan for that area, why couldn’t they have planted grass when they laid down the pathway?

So what are we thinking like a fountain that squirts up when you clap?

After shutting down traffic in the Fort and Douglas they moved on to block the Johnson Street bridge just after 3 p.m.. While on the bridge they painted a mural across the deck that said “No Consent, No Access,” referring to efforts by Coastal Gaslink company to build on Wet’suwet’en territory.

Each of the protestors should be charged with trespassing and damage to public property.

I have to wonder if the same stunt would have been pulled if last week's rains had lasted a few days longer. That would have been real conviction.

 

On the plus side, the photo should make it relatively easy to identify the perpetrators and begin prosecuting them.

There is confusion about the paint used on the bridge with some including CHEK calling it egg tempera. This is incorrect, it is merely cheap ordinary tempera poster paint. No egg is used. Egg tempera is an ancient painting technique using egg yolk as the medium. That technique is permanent and is rarely used today except by the most dedicated professional fine artists due to it difficulty and expense. Examples from Roman times look as good today as they did 2000 years ago.
