No Canucks on the big screens 

Council rejects idea


There will be no cheering for the Canucks under the big screens in the village during the Stanley Cup finals.

At a cost of roughly $40,000, council has squashed the idea.
"I'm really frustrated," said Councillor Ralph Forsyth, who brought the idea to the council table at Thursday's meeting.
"That was an easy win for the community."

He said the money could have come from the Resort Municipality Initiative (RMI) funding, which is funding for tourism related programs and infrastructure.

The screens would have been "something fun and happy for the town" and a way to generate some extra traffic for struggling businesses in town, said Forsyth.

The municipality has not yet issued a press release or update on the matter.
