Please take two minutes to tell
Mayor Sam Sullivan and city council what you want in this year’s budget by
completing this expanded budget questionnaire at

Each year, the City of Vancouver
goes through a public consultation process on the annual budget. For the 2008
budget, the City Choices survey was expanded by Think City
to provide citizens with a wider range of choices, and an opportunity to
comment on issues the city hasn’t addressed in its own survey.

COPE thanks Think City
for their work and apologizes that they were not acknowledged in our
newsletter.

Reminder: COPE 40th Anniversary Bash!
…with Wyckham Porteous, Aaron Nazrul and
Chelsea Johnson!

Lordy, lordy, COPE is forty! Join COPE
friends, members, candidates and elected old and new for a night of great
music and fun!

What: COPE 40th Anniversary Bash

Who: Wyckham Porteous, Aaron Nazrul
and Chelsea Johnson with COPE friends

Wyckham is a veteran East Vancouver
singer-song writer, poet and playwright.
His latest album was produced by Andrew Oldham, former manager and producer of
the Rolling Stones, and Wyckham’s performance will come on the heels of its
Canadian release. Wyckham is also known for his hit play Joe’s Cafe
and as co-founder of the Buried Heart Project. www.wyckhamporteous.org.

Aaron is a rising star on the Vancouver
music scene. He combines original folk, Latin and classic covers. Aaron’s first
full release "Butterfly Man" has had great reviews across the country
and an excellent reception at the Edinburgh Music Festival. www.myspace.com/aaronnazrul.

Chelsea Johnson has visited the Cross Roads, where she spoke to the Devil. As
she sat down to share his stool and cig he whispered, "use your power, take
your responsibility." With songs like, "Walking and
Talking," "I feel so
blue" and "Keep ’em safe," she must have been using her powers
right. With voice, guitar and the Dirty Blues Chelsea opens herself up and
shares with all of us.

When: March 28, 2008

Meet and Greet with elected and
candidates, old and new from 7:30-9pm.

Music at 9:30 until late.

Where: Maritime Labour Centre, 1880
Triumph St (just off the #4, 7, 10, 16 or 20 bus lines)

Why: Because it will be tons of fun
and a great way to support Vancouver’s progressive membership-driven party!

Tickets are $15-$40, sliding scale.
No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
