Open house 4 date set

So all along the website stated:
Open house 4 – Creation of Vision Process
Open house 4 – Creation of Vision Process  
Open house 4 – Panel Discussion – [ site changed description on May 19 2015, thanks to Internet Archive Wayback Machine] for saving the files.   Apparently the rules have changed we were told all along that this Open House 4 would actually be where the public would get to see all the condensed comments, and have a final say if we agree with them. Now we are going to be bored to death with four talking heads, justifying their existence in this world, by ranting about who knows what.

So  Open House 4 now relegated to a panel discussion will be on,  Wednesday, June 10, 2015

6:30pm – 7:00pm – Sign in
7:00pm – BC Housing Introduction
7:10pm – 9:30pm – Panel discussion

PLACE: Executive Plaza Hotel,  405 North Rd, Coquitlam

Out with the Creation of Vision Process and in with the Vision Already Created Process, by four talking heads.

 Moderator will be: Gordon Price  hey you can E-Mail him. He has a wikipedia page   apparently Tweets sometimes too.

Dr. Julian Somers

Darrell Burnham, (Scroll to Bottom of page) Chief Executive Officer, Coast Foundation Society. Hey you can E-Mail him if you want.

Brent Toderian  who also Tweets sometimes.

Tsur Somerville   and more about him

Update:   Last round of Riverview consultation is next month  [Note: sad to hear from Michael Flanagan that the Gov. still does not want to have an acute mental health care component at the hospital.  ]
And after a much anticipated long wait the Third Open House Report is now available for your perusal.

And as everyone is waiting for the final outcomes of this study in social intercourse, not far away another announcement:  $260-million RCH redevelopment a game changer for mental health

RCH the new Riverview?  A government that is not looking properly at the costs, considerably cheaper to create many of the wants at Riverview, than at RCH.
