About four years ago, our hapless city council decided to close the Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth park. I was furious ! So were thousands of other citizens …..and we simply refused to let it happen. Against all odds – we saved it ! Our leader was (and still is) John Coupar, who took this photo today (late Feb. 2014) ! The roof is being replaced, section by section. The same company that originally made the plexiglas ‘bubbles’ in 1968 is remaking them now. All the plants and birds are safe and happy, now we have to ‘rescue’ the awful gift shop in the lobby…..
