Of course, it's election year.

These pigs will bring it back next time they get a chance.

Great. How about Jericho/Locarno now?

I still don't understand why some parks are free and others are not. Instead of charging $10 for a day at one and $0 at another, how about charging $5 for the day at both. Either charge a small amount evenly across the system or make them ALL free and get the revenue from other sources. A monthly or season pass should also be good at ANY Vancouver park where pay parking is in effect.

Don't worry, it appears to be the same as last year. If you follow the link to the EasyPark website on the above page it shows it's still just the lots around the Jericho Sailing Centre that require payment. I know if these lots weren't pay lots I'd never be able to find parking on a Saturday afternoon in the summer and get a lightwind session.

We should try and get them a picture of people actually kiteboarding at Dog Beach instead of them showing Kyle riding a race board in Squamish, an activity that has literally disappeared several years ago with the advent of foils.
