Translation: We Want to Put A Liquor Store, What Do You Think?

I saw this downtown last week and was reminded of this Ted X Talk by Dave Meslin. He proposed that “apathy as we think we know it doesn’t actually exist, but rather that people do care but we live in a world that actively discourages engagement.” He used city notices like these as an example. […]

I believe Wells is where everyone from Prince George to Williams Lake who’s ever had a neighbour complain about violating some sort of appearance bylaw has moved. It is awesome.

Music That Moves You – Literally – in Fort St John

Here’s a cool event from “northern BC’s music capital” (not sure when they got that designation, but events like this certainly help make the case).

Golf course would make a great park

Here we have a golf course in the perfect location for a park with manicured lawns, gently rolling hills, ornamental ponds and paths already in place. Why bulldoze it to make room for housing and retail space which the city doesn’t need?

This is What A Bike Lane Looks Like?

It’s the last day of Bike to Work Week. Even though I bike to work more often than not, this week I forced myself to do it on days when I normally wouldn’t have (rain, up the University Way hill on a deadline). And you know what? It wasn’t bad.  Especially since in most of […]
