Please Note: Special meeting tonight postponed to tomorrow night at Thursday February 9 at 6pm.

As you may be aware, Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning that identifies a risk of freezing rain for this evening.  Out of an abundance of caution for public safety, and in response to feedback received from a number of CCA representatives, the decision has been  made to cancel tonight’s Special Park Board meeting that was scheduled to commence at 6pm.

The weather forecast indicates warming temperatures for Thursday, so we will be proceeding with the Special meeting tomorrow night at 6pm, at SFU’s Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue.  The meeting will start with a staff presentation followed by hearing from registered speakers.

Kerrisdale will be providing a free bus service to the special meeting at SFU’s Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue tomorrow night. Limited seating. Please contact Alison at to secure your seat. To members only, first come first serve.
