TEA & TWO SLICES: On Luongo And Smoking Weed With Tourists Out By The Steam Clock

May 16, 2012.

by Sean Orr | An elected Senate would ruin B.C., so Harper should have no problem ram-rodding it through then. That’s why I vote Loyalist every time. Down with the Whigs! Long live King George!

Another strange DTES smear piece from The Courier: Vancouver housing provider operates brothels in the Downtown Eastside. What gives? This on the heels of the study that proved sex workers were safer with indoor work spaces. No mention of that in the article, of course. Go figure.

Related: Kitsilano tops the list of 10 cheating neighbourhoods in Vancouver. I love that the byline is by “Staff Writer”. Nobody in the newsroom wanted to put their name to this piece of garbage.

Why Translink is Bankrupt: Metro Vancouver’s Transit Police rack up huge overtime bills. Handing out tickets that no one ever pays?Brilliant. And then something like this happens.

Everything’s Gone Green: V-Pole. A Wi-Fi, Electric Vehicle Charging Lamp Post of the Future. It will also read selective Douglas Coupland quotes like “TV and the Internet are good because they keep stupid people from spending too much time out in public”.

Who cares if it helps the city? The real question is if it’s good for business: City expands summer VIVA Vancouver plan to restrict vehicle traffic in urban areas. Stick a couple of V-Poles in there and you got yourselves a rockin’ street party!

Unfortunately relevant: Should stratas consider non-smoking bylaws? Not unless you want me smoking, like, 25 joints a day in front of the steam clock. I mean, I’m not exactly pro-Tourism Vancouver, but I’m sure they’d rather I kept the huge plumes of marijuana smoke inside my super fancy Gastown loft (that my parents bought for me).

Cool, and only about 10 years late: Vancouver activists dumpster dine to save the planet. Holy shit this is priceless: “A group of young women who call themselves ‘freegans’ search dumpsters for edible food in the Metro area. They are not homeless or poor, but choose to scavenge their meals this way”. Great, now the Vancouver Sun is hiring writers fresh from the sixth grade.

Why are all the best writers sports-writers? “The Tampa Bay Lightning would control the (media) outlets allowed to have access to Roberto Luongo. Right now, the two publications that seem to have the inside track are: Italian Goaltender Weekly and The Luongo Family Christmas Newsletter. Also, Skymall has submitted a questionnaire asking where Roberto likes to eat when he’s in downtown Nashville.”

Bonus: Fucking Snakeheads! Fish sighting in Burnaby lagoon raises alarm (with video). With viddeeoo!
