Vancouver City Council is doing its part to get NHL hockey back on the ice.
Councilor Geoff Meggs put forward the motion that will have the mayor send a letter to the payers and owners imploring them to get back to the table and back to playing.
Meggs denies that such a motion from is silly.
"It's a significant impact on the conomy of the city and people don't feel it's frivilous and are about to get into the playoffs everybody welcomes the opportunity to see that economic activity here"
Meggs says the motion follows in the footsteps of a similar one by Ottawa city council.
