Plant Politics

The Molson Canada brewery on Burrard Street may be the biggest consumer of water in the region.

But equally important, it is the flat ugliest sight in town and why is it still sitting on the south end of the Burrard Bridge blocking the view and skyline to the water and the city?

I'm surprised that over the many years of development and change that this area has seen, no one at city hall has begun the "moving" conversation with Molson.

Maybe they have and maybe Molson has a great hold on the property that it is reluctant to abandon.

But that's what deal making is about. Give these folks a good reason to move and a good site ELSEWHERE to move to and we might have something more fitting in the core of our city.
