Re: "Seawall stall," July 25.
I urge Mayor Robertson to do an onsite walkabout with Mel Lehan, Kitsilano activist, and Terry Slack, Vancouver natural foreshores environmentalist. This marine environment is the last piece of natural pristine waterfront in Vancouver. Common sense suggests that the impact of a seawall/walkway on this marine foreshore will be significant.
The anonymous donor's $10 million would be much better spent purchasing street end real estate for marine foreshore viewing mini parks.
The Vancouver park board needs to hire a well respected consultant firm with knowledge in marine biology and geology to study this political seawall extension.
