TEA & TWO SLICES: On Big Trouble At The Cactus Club And Mt. Pleasant Becoming Kits

Gentrification nation: Conflict of Interest at City Hall | Condo Tower Approved in Chinatown. Juicy stuff, Mainlander, although I’m not sure how I feel about the jab at the good people opening up on the 400 block of Columbia…

Pressure mounts on B.C. Liberals to end silence on Northern Gateway pipeline (and speaking of pressures mounting, my new album Pressure Mounts just dropped).
Yellow Cabs Drawn into Rocky Mountaineer Labour Fight. This is the same Rob Ford-esque piece of work who was chair of the NPA’s election campaign when the lockout first started, then accused Vision of meddling.
