A backlash of criticim has arisen in the aftermath of Wednesday's city council meeting in Vancouver during which Mayor Gregor Robertson initiated a motion for parks board staff to consider turning part of Langara Golf Course into parkland. What was supposed to be on the table that night was a motion to look into upgrading the golf course's drainage system.
Work to install new irrigation at two Calgary ball diamonds has thrown a curve at a local little league.

"We'll literally have to tell these guys, sorry, we can't field a team this year," the league's vice-president says.
Tempers got short during Wednesday's meeting of Vancouver City Council when a discussion about drainage at the Langara Golf Course unexpectedly changed direction into one that explored turning part of the property into a park. Langara, the oldest public golf course in British Columbia, accounts for about 25 per cent of the parks board's annual revenue.
