People in Vancouver have the most to lose if the rumours are true changes are coming to the management of Granville Island.
That according to a local Liberal MP Hedy Fry.
Fry says she will dig in and fight any moves that would see fundamental changes brought to Granville Island.
The long time Liberal MP is weighing in on reports the federal government plans to transfer the management of Granville Island from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation to the Port Authority.
Fry says Granville Island is all about food, culture and art.
She says she’ll battle any attempt to “privitize or commercialize it”, should that occur.
Mayor Gregor Robertson calls the island a national landmark, and says local decision making and operations are critical to its revitalization and continued success.
