Earlier, we noted the University of British Columbia Golf Course would be hosting the provincial Liberal's annual Leader's Open Golf Tournament. This being the same venue the provincial government is expected to cede to the Musqueam First Nation. Asked for comment, Save the UBC Golf Course organizer Bob Hindmarch said, "I think it's ironic that they want to take away golf course and now they're going to use it. And it's the very thing we've been telling an awful lot of people. That golf course is used a great deal by charities to raise money for not just this side of the city but the whole city."
