The city wavers on water and trees

I guess rules don’t apply to the city, just the peasants who happen to live here.

I have just returned from walking my dog in Robson Park and I can’t help but scratch my head at what appears to be a total disregard of sprinkler regulations by the city.

The playing field is soaking wet, but that is understandable as it seems to get soaked not once but twice a day, even in this drought.

I guess rules don’t apply to the city, just the peasants who happen to live here.

Another thing I have noticed is where the resident beaver cut trees for his dams, trees had started coming back with new growth.

The city has now cut down most of what was left and have planted more trees.

Granted, they are different trees but to me it seems a total waste of tax dollars to cut trees only to replace them with more trees, even if they are different ones
