#25KLunch memes make mockery of Gregor Robertson's private meeting

    1 of 13 2 of 13

      Earlier this month, condo king Bob Rennie invited less than 50 "prominent" people to a private "roundtable" with Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson.

      The Province reported that Rennie encouraged attendees to donate $25,000 to Robertson's party, Vision Vancouver.

      Needless to say, the suggested donation for admission to this meeting hasn't sat well with everyone.

      Critics took to Twitter, posting a number of hilarious memes using the hashtag #25KLunch.

      A blogger named Melissa Fong, who says she started the hashtag, is running a meme competition on her site.

      Here's some of the memes that have been shared.

      Hey- I started the #25KLunch meme along with other dedicated people that were engaged when I was Live Tweeting the DTES LAP meetings. I wanted to turn it into a competition from the start:

      Haven't laughed this much in a long, long while. Who would with this gormless city council? Always better to laugh at them than with them.

      And please, someone, re-start the meme generator on TED!

      There were very few developers at Downtown Eastside Local Area Plan presentations. Developer don't have to mingle with the low income and poor... At the end of day, the Vision Vancouver and Non-Partisan Association bunch leave City Hall to do sleep overs with developers... political prostitution for $25k eh...

      And Oakridge just got approved even though the plan broke a long standing promise about parks space, is inordinately and unreasonably dense compared to the surrounding, etc, etc.

      Just saying.
