Today’s big stories in the Sun:
NPA Park Board Commissioner mad he can’t name a park after himself.
Standing in George Wainborn Park – an NPA commissioned park constructed on contaminated land in North East False Creek area and named after the sitting Chair of the NPA dominated park board – NPA park commissioner John Coupar attacked Vision’s plan to open up the park naming process to – gasp! – the public.
“I remember when we kept it cozy,” John Coupar told a crowd of two. “We named this park after our own. We couldn’t have done this under this new touchy feely, hippy dippy public process. It’s an outrage that we can no longer take care of our own.”
Coupar pledged to fight meaningful public involvement to the end. “Join me tomorrow when I replace the Stanley Park sign with ‘John Coupar Park’. That’ll teach the public to stay out of the park naming business.”

Dix felt the full weight of the law for his unforgiveable negligence. He got a warning.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s expose from the Sun’s crack investigative team: “Adrian Dix – the library fines”.
