Anti-pipeline graffiti upsets Vancouver business owners
Some residents feel the graffiti is vandalizing their neighbourhood.
Gonyea says graffiti is a normal part of life on Commercial Drive and gets reported immediately. But, the recent surge in the “No Pipeline” graffiti has kept them busier than normal.
He says it is costing businesses and store owners thousands of dollars to fix.
“This is what seems to tick people off,” says Gonyea. “That something that nice, that someone has gone into trouble to create, he is actually maliciously going after. I think that has brought it to a head.”
