Mayor Gregor hates the Main Street Poodle

We first told you about the giant Main Street poodle (do yourself a favour and read the comments in our previous article) perched high atop a black pole on Main and 17th. Since our posting it’s caused quite the stir and other media outlets have picked up on this controversial canine public art, mainly due to the cost of this project, $100,000. 

According to a tweet by News 1130, it seems that our esteemed Mayor isn’t even a fan of the public art.

One must ask themselves, what does a poodle have to do with Main Street, or East Vancouver in general? For a $100,000 the city could have got something really special, instead with get this.
