Vancouver site sought for love locks

Non-Partisan Association commissioners of the Park Board are taking on the challenge of choosing a spot for Vancouver’s “love locks” where they won’t get routinely removed.
Commissioner John Coupar said on Thursday that earlier, the locks — used typically by lovebirds, who inscribe their names onto the lock, click it shut and toss the key — had earlier been found on the Burrard Bridge but were removed by city crews.
Another location along False Creek was on private property and those were removed as well.
Coupar said he’d like to find a spot on park land, perhaps near the waterfront, that could serve as a permanent location.
“We got so many things that are controversial, this could be something everybody could support, get behind — it’s not something that would cost a lot of money,” he said.
