Vision trashes NPA motion to curb park board catering

Vision Vancouver is calling an NPA motion to curb catering at the park board “poorly thought out.”

Vice-chair Aaron Jasper says ordering “sandwiches and carrots sticks” only costs about $ 2,000 per year. 

He says if commissioner Melissa De Genova’s motion is approved, that would take up three times that much in work hours for staff to go out and grab dinner.

“Commissioner De Genova claims this is about setting a good example and looking for money we can put into youth programs. The irony is, if we approve her motion, it’s even less money that we would have for youth programming.”

When asked why staff can’t bring in a meal like most working folks do, Jasper did not answer directly, but reiterated “it’s not good thinking” to ask staff to go out to feed themselves.
