Ah Socialism

The first thing I saw as I walked up Davie street to my hotel in Vancouver was this community garden on a very busy corner in the middle of downtown. I couldn't believe any city in the world would let such prime real estate be used for such a use. After some more research it turns out this particular garden is on the site of a former gas station (see above link) and it also seems that some of the new gardens (like this one, they plan to build several all over town) are just temporary, but regardless better to have a temporary community garden then a boarded up derelict gas station waiting to become a condo. No?
