Spirit Square lights burning up my taxes

When I drive to work at 6 a.m. I see that the Spirit Square is always lit right up like a movie set, blaspheming against our starry skies.

I wonder how many baby squirrels BC Hydro has to drown every day to fuel this weird expression of civic vanity? Another dumb waste of my taxes, and a disrespect for our mother nature as well.
