Let Stanley Park Be!
In 1889, Lord Stanley, Canada’s Governor General,
dedicated a unique 400 hectares of forested peninsula “To
The Use And Enjoyment Of People Of All Colours,
Creed And Customs For All Time.” Stanley Park is
recognized internationally as a rare, natural urban park.
The federally leased land has been recognized by the
public as an area which provides a “sense of place”
(Stanley Park Master Plan, 1988). In 1989, Lifeforce
succeeded in having Stanley Park designated as a
National Historic Site.|
As a gift of nature - that vital link between people
and wildlife - the park is a legacy to be protected.
For 25 years Lifeforce has been campaigning to protect
precious Stanley Park and to stop capture and
imprisonment of fellow sentient creatures with whom we
share this planet. In spite of our progress the park is
becoming too expensive and inaccessible for all to enjoy.
The Aquarium/zoo business will control most of the park
and charge more and more if we don’t Save Stanley Park.
