Seek out your local artists- they’re telling your story the way no one else can.
A morning of darkness.
A place isn’t defined by who happened to be born there and left. It’s defined by who decides to stay.
In the debate over a recovery center at Haldi Road, a key question is: how much control should you have over your own neighbourhood?
What if the city ranked “Canada’s Most Dangerous City” is actually Canada’s most dangerous city?
Books and Company is a staple of Prince George, and for good reason: it’s more public space than private business.
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. […]
Your five square blocks of core reality.
It is snowing out there today, and this morning I got an email telling me that the #91 bus in Prince George was delayed. That means it’s time for me to remind all of you that I created a tool that will email, text or Tweet you all delays and cancellations issued by BC Transit […]
