Sounds like a Commie plot to me.

Right, and the City of Vancouver is too busy closing down streets and making bike lanes to concern itself with tents.

The District has been making an "issue" of these items for years. Personally I'd rather make an issue about the huge percentage of petty bueaucrats making over 100 grand a year. OK, rant over. Oh, and I'm not supposed to park my Escape in my front driveway either. But the mayor's exc. assistant does it also so if they make an issue of it, bring it on.

I never hear anybody complaining about bureaucrats preventing a company from building a animal carcass rendering facility next door to them. Nor do I hear them complaining about bylaws dealing with multiple vehicles owned by people in illegal suites clogging up their block. Don't hear them complaining about bureaucrats building schools or recreation centres either.

If you read the bylaw, there has to be a complaint by a neighbour who lives within 300 meters of the offender. If you get along with your neighbours, you will be fine.

Always buy fundraiser fruit from the kids when they come to your door and hand out big candy bars at Halloween. Word gets around and tolerance goes up.

Wise words. A little extra kindness goes a long way in generating a lot of good will.

Maybe that's why we have yet to get egged. Those big Snickers must pay off.

Good fences make good neighbors... and bribery makes good neighbors, too.

i am putting it beside my house with a fence around it so only the top will be visible. I've seen them in my neighborhood out in front of houses for years. I don't like the look of them so i want it to be as unobtrusive as possible. 5 k just for the permit makes building one very expensive.
