Boondoggle Building Off to a Bad Start

The unecessary, expensive, ugly blight on the waterfront, otherwise known Vancouver Convention Centre has been flooded. (CBC)
A water leak at Vancouver's new convention centre has flooded two levels of the mammoth building, damaging the flooring and forcing 1,000 delegates of a Public Service Alliance of Canada convention out onto the street.

The PSAC convention was supposed to be just the second event at the new convention centre, but just before the annual meeting kicked off Monday morning, the delegates got an unwelcome surprise.


The Vancouver Convention Centre was opened earlier this month at a cost of nearly $900 million, and is slated to be the main international press centre and broadcast facility during the upcoming 2010 Winter Games in February.

Good thing it was only the PSAC who were inconvenienced, since they spend their lives doing that to us. Probably a few bureaucrats in there that signed off on this monster.
