Waste My Time, Please

GUY [of Robert Linsley painting behind the desk]: That's Mission, ain't it?

CJB: Ruskin. Close. Good eyes.

GUY: I haven't been out there in years!

CJB: Still looks pretty much the same. That painting was made about 10 years ago, so the trees are higher now, of course, but, other than that, not much change.

GUY: It's a real problem.

CJB: Eh?

GUY: Vancouver's greening. It's like Sherwood Forest! All you see is the canopy. You can't even see Trout Lake from the Skytrain any more! Just trees! We used to be able to see Livingstone Elementary from our window. . .Little Mountain. . .the Conservatory. . .people walking around. Now it's all just green. Somebody should do something.

CJB: What should somebody do?

GUY: Cut 'em all down. Every last one. They probably won't, though!
