Company doing vertical garden in Vancouver says city councillor’s statements are inaccurate

November 22nd, 2012 · 26 Comments

I’ve temporarily removed my last blog post, which consisted almost entirely of a news release from NPA Councillor George Affleck, questioning a city contract given to Alterrus Systems.

Chair Stephen Fane and CEO Chris Ng just called me saying it has serious inaccuracies and citing some of them. In the interests of not repeating potentially bad information, I won’t say for the moment what they were. However, anyone who wants is free to look at said news release on the www.npavancouver.ca website.

I do find it odd they called me, rather than Affleck. They claimed that I am easier to get hold of than the city councillor. I’ve asked George what he has to say and am waiting for an answer.

If this were my own story and own reporting, I’d be quite comfortable leaving it up. As it’s someone else’s research and statement, I’m pulling it for the moment until I can check into the facts. I can’t get around to that immediately, as I’m working all night on another project.
