Last week I was at City Hall for public hearings. It was over an urban planning fiasco that the B.C. provincial government is trying to force upon the City of Vancouver—a giant slot machine casino in the middle of the downtown core. Due to the overflow of citizens opposing this idiotic plan I had to go all the way down to the basement of City Hall to find a bathroom, and that’s when I found this mural from 1972. I didn’t know who Graham Warrington was—he turns out to be a Vancouver architectural photographer—but the fact that this mural hasn’t been painted over in 39 years suggests it’s now heritage, which made me happy. Seeing it was a momentary respite from the disingenuous government and gambling industry presentations going on upstairs. Note: City Hall is being renovated, hence the mess.
