PavCo Giant Billboard continues to operate in 2012 - No rest for neighbours

‘City Hall Watch’, a citizen review website addressing major City of Vancouver policies, chronicles the 2008 decision by the BC Supreme Court and BC Court of Appeals to have a giant billboard at Main and Broadway removed as per the City of Vancouver’s wishes.  The story goes on to explain that “At the time, the City of Vancouver had assembled an entire legal team to fight the billboard in Mount Pleasant”, and that now, the author adds, “the city has experience and <has set> a precedent in fighting illegal billboards.”  - Will City Hall once again mount a determined charge against, this time a high intensity electronic billboard, and force the dismantling of the Terry Fox Plaza giant screen?  Indications coming from City Hall are very promising… stay tuned for developments.
