This, in my opinion, was a huge gaff on the part of the Mayor Gregor Robertson, and the past Vancouver City Council – (not the current one just sworn in), to destroy a cultural heritage of our city.

I mean if you can remodel another theatre that will be managed – and we hope well, by the Cultch, why not do the same for the Pantages in a neighbourhood that can desperately  use a breath of culture – DTES?

Mayor Gregor Robertson and former council members excuses not to attempt to save the Pantages were “lame”, ill-informed and just plain stupid.

Merry Christmas and Bah-humbug!
