Vancouver Park Board Chair Responds To Bike Path Critics

After the Kits bike path drama that has unfolded this week, Sarah Blyth, the Park Board Chair, responds basically telling everyone to chill the F out. There has been reports swirling around that the construction of the $2.2 million bike path will rip up the beloved Kitsilano Beach Park area. Blyth says, "Recent media stories of the Park Board moving memorial benches, cutting down large trees and paving large swathes of the grassy fields are completely untrue. White chalk lines outlining a wide route through the Park were not painted by the Park Board and do not in any way reflect the route to be taken." So there. Are critics still planning to rally this weekend?
