Scope and Content
Photograph of the public information meeting about the controversial Kensington Overpass held by Burnaby Council. The Kensington Homeowners' Association was protesting the overpass project, as they felt it would "destroy the quiet, residential nature of their neighbourhood." Council approved the project earlier that year, despite its having been turned down in two referendums in recent years. There were close to 800 angry residents in attendance at the public information meeting held at Burnaby North Senior Secondary School.
