More shocking City of Vancouver grants to the Cycling/Enviro Nexus.

My good friends at City Caucus are on the case of City of Vancouver grants to the cycling movment and environmental groups. I’ve found some more:

  • $3500 to the Evergreen Environmental Foundation for “Earth Day” Celebrations
  • $2,000 to the Pedal Energy Development Alternatives Power Association for what appears to be a party.
  • $4,000 to the Vancouver Wooden Boat Society, because wooden boats are made from a renewable resource.

Okay, that last one is a bit of a stretch.

Update: As they are obviously very interested in rooting out and exposing this sort of thing, I left the above as a comment on City Caucus. Alas, it looks like the dog might have eaten it. But don’t take that as evidence City Caucus is an NPA website only interested in the perceived foibles of the NPA’s opponents. No, no! It’s stated clearly that City Caucus is dedicated to “the ideas, the politics, and the people behind making Canadian cities.”

So I’m sure it’s [cough] forthcoming.
