Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson takes flack for #25KLunch on Twitter

To all the Vancouver politics wonks out there: Meme alert.

Political opponents to dominant civic party Vision Vancouver took to Twitter Tuesday with the hashtag #25KLunch to mock Mayor Gregor Robertson for an expensive lunch roundtable hosted by "condo king" Bob Rennie.

Rennie invited 50 professionals to donate $25,000 to Vision Vancouver to attend a luncheon with Robertson earlier this month. Not surprisingly, this invited criticism from those that can't afford the price tag. (Not that they were invited.)
