VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — “It’s beyond offensive.”
“We’ve reached a new low.”
“The ugliest thing I’ve seen on False Creek.”
Some harsh criticism is being heaped on a new floating billboard plying the waters from English Bay to Science World from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week.
Fern Jeffries is a long-time activist in False Creek
“It’s astonishing that that kind of blight would be allowed in our beautiful city,” she tells NEWS 1130.
“The quality of the creek I think is a concern, not just the people who have a good view but to people who are concerned with quality of life and ability of our kids to experience waterfront nature.”
On its company website, Burke Billboards writes – “we take the beautiful waterways, the stunning skyline of Vancouver, and make it the perfect platform for you to grasp your audience’s attention.”
