    EDIT: Sorry kids, I misread that - Western Canada's oldest Vaudeville theatre - originally built by Pantages himself.

    And people wonder why I loathe Vancouver and it's lack of soul.

    They're just tear-down crazy everywhere, eh?
     
  4. Disgusting. Vancouver sounds like Canada's version of Salt Lake City.

    Damn Shame... These types of debacles among other things are what have inspired me to apply to college for a major in Historical Preservation.

    Write letters, mes amis. I encourage my friends and detractors alike in the FL to email Gregor Robertson. and tell him that his friends in the real estate biz that they can build condos elsewhere.

    Why should most people care when their nose is buried in an I-phone 24/7. What a shame.
     
  10. Here in the Swan River Colony in the early 1970's, His Majesties Theatre was due to be demolished, it was not operating, and was in fact a Flop House, public opinion saved it, and now it is the Cities premier Theatre
