Misplaced priorities at City Hall

I cannot believe the John Robson parent advisory council and New Westminster city council live on the same planet.

While the first one cannot find $60,000 for a playground for the new school the second one is willing to spend $65,000 plus $17,000 for controversial (let’s say ugly) so-called art—rusty transport containers—for Westminster Pier Park.

There is a better way to spend taxpayers’ money.

If they love the rusty art so much they can pay their own money.
