A so-called "shrine" to Jimi Hendrix is in danger of being razed in Vancouver, British Columbia.  The "shrine" is an old building that was once part of a restaurant where Hendrix' grandmother used to work and where Hendrix spent time as a youth.  The Chinatown area of Vancouver, where the building is located, has hit on hard times and the city would like to revitalize it.  A local developer wants to see the area re-zoned to allow him to build a series of high rise apartments.  As you might expect there are activists that don't want to see this happen.
