George Affleck doesn’t just love Vancouver – he lives Vancouver. He is the founder of a boutique marketing and publicrelations company based in Yaletown. He lives just a few blocks away and makes a point of walking to work when he can. George and his partner,Amanda, share three children who attend different schools downtown, in False Creek and in Kitsilano and he spends much of his family time taking the kids to sports events, singing or art classes.George is often asked why he is running in this campaign. His answer is simple: Because Vancouver Matters. Born in the Lower Mainland and having lived the “Expo 86 Experience” before travelling extensively, it was inevitable George would return home to Vancouver to raise his family.It’s this passion and commitment George wants to bring to civic politics; to ensure our community thrives so Vancouver Matters to each and every one of us.George’s passion for his city means he is strongly committed to groups in his community; his company, Curve Communications, works closely with arts groups, not-for-profits and small businesses, he is chair of False Creek Elementary Parent Advisory Committee, is a member of the board for the Vancouver Children’s Festival and is past chair of the Vancouver Comedy Festival and the Cooperative Auto Network (now Modo).Contact:

    Dear George,
    I am writing to you about the Love Locks project you are working towards. In my personal opinion I think that it is a waste of time an eye sore and un original which seems to right up Vancouvers ally. Putting a lock on a fence is not a way to symbolize someones love forever. One of the the things that people always go on about when it comes to vancouver is the nature Espicially when it comes to Stanley Park. So what I propose since I be littled the love lock idea is taking peoples love for each other and combining it with the love for Vancouver and giving away seedlings to people who wish to plant one together as a couple in the ravaged area of prospect point from the wind storm of 06 or any where elses in stanley park for that matter. Everyone has gps on there phone so they will know where there tree is, and you wont get people cutting the trees for scrap metal or having to maintain the structure. You can set up shop from spring until end of labour day, you will create jobs and help the enviroment, $5 shovle donation to the trees or something. Lets do something original for once.
