Yep, First Nations are wanting the good old Stanley Park renamed now…
Vancouver’s world-famous Stanley Park will be renamed Xwayxway, if native leaders get their wish.
Xwayxway, pronounced kwhykway, ( uh huh? um ok…) was the name of the large permanent native village that existed at what is now Lumberman’s Arch.
I had a good long rant after this that i decided was more appropriate to an HST rant so i will go there. I resist all the name changes and I don’t give a damn whose land it was way back when. Vancouver is well known around the world and visitors come from near and far to see Stanley Park, let it rest.
