Over the past few years, I have been following the process that has been involved with the Ireland Canada Monument Society, which will erect a monument to the Irish-Canadian connection in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The organizers have been working with the Vancouver Parks Board staff to get confirmation of the design. Guess what? They got word that the design was confirmed yesterday - St Patrick’s Day - of all days!!! The monument will be erected in the George Wainbourn and David Lam Park sites at False Creek, Vancouver.
When the drawings are complete, they will be submitted to Vancouver Parks Board for the Public Process to notify local residents and businesses living near both parks to see the design. This process will take about three weeks.
They will hold a meeting in the near future, and if you would like to attend, please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
