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.

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