  1. Elizabeth Campbell says:

    At the Council Meeting of March 11, 2014 Port Moody Council voted not to give grants and fee waivers for rent of space to seniors groups and other non profit groups. Port Moody and Pitt Meadows are the only cities in the Metro Vancouver area not to give community grants. Look up the Council meeting minutes of March 11, 2014 to see who voted against this. They were some of the same ones that passed the OCP in its present form.

  2. Rick Evon says:

    Thank you Elizabeth.

    This Council and Mayor does not care about Seniors and non profit groups who oppose their agenda. Vote accordingly.
