Port Metro Vancouver is confirming “exploratory discussions” are underway with the Canada Mortage and Housing Corporation over the management of Granville Island.

President and CEO Robin Silvester says in a prepared statement that it’s too soon to speculate on the outcome of the discussions.

Speculation swirled yesterday over the possible change of management, with local business owners calling it “disheartening and shocking.”

In defence, Silvester points out its successful operation of another tourist landmark,  Canada Place, which recently hosted the nation’s second-largest Canada Day celebration .


  1. Don’t kid yourself, the plans are in place and nobody can change it no matter how much talk and protest is mounted.
    Some people are so naive they think governments , politicians (Harper) will listen to them.
