It looks like Canadian Pacific doesn’t have a whole lot of time for Vancouver’s mayor as they begin clearing the Arbutus corridor as promised.
On July 28th Mayor Gregor Robertson wrote CP’s Chief Executive Officer E. Hunter Harrison.
In the letter Robertson asked him to cease any effort to clear away personal property and gardens along the Arbutus corridor.
With work beginning today to do just that it looks like CP is not inclined to respect the mayor’s request.
Robertson also repeating that city and the rail company remain far apart on the actual value of the land.
The city has offered to buy the land for 20-million..CP wants 100-million.
