PB and CCAs deal in jeopardy? – Dec 6 (Vancouver Sun Article)
A proposed new deal between the Vancouver park board and 20 community-centre associations that’s been more than a decade in the making may be in jeopardy even before it’s implemented.
If approved, the joint operating agreement would signal a new chapter in a relationship, which, in the case of some community-centre associations, has been fraught with acrimony and legal disputes in recent years.
But 15 associations have criticized the final draft of the proposed deal, saying it contains major hurdles to a successful pact.
