TEA & TWO SLICES: On My Big Election & Homeless Dave’s Amazing New Discoveries

April 24, 2013.

by Sean Orr | Uh-oh! Someone got their funding taken away: Vancity in the Downtown Eastside: The Gentrification Drive of BC’s Largest Credit Union. Or all of these things are bad: hiring otherwise un-employable members of the community, growing food in under-used lots, sandwich tokens, Woodwards, Habitat for Humanity, the Portland Hotel Society, donuts, coffee, and of course, the hidden perils of tight pants and facial hair.

Related: “I live near the condos [60 W Cordova] and I notice there are stores nearby now that sell $12,000 couches”, Uh, here’s a newsflash for Homeless Dave: InForm has been “near the condos” for decades. Seriously, why isn’t anyone blaming the Old Spaghetti Factory?

Related: Ivan Drury has resigned from his position as CCAP’s main organizer. Ding, dong, is the witch really dead?

Kinder Surprise: Dix declares opposition to Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. Happy (belated) Earth Day future Premier, even if you are anti-Canadian.

Hey, why not sell the Convention Centre Expansion at a huge loss, too? Dix says NDP will try to sell BC Place to cover Pavco debt. Leading to the Tweet of the Day c/o LeyneLes:

I’ve got a big election: Whipped: The Secret World Of Party Discipline. Kinky. I think I’m going to go poll my riding.

I love Canada: Moose scientists ‘muzzled’ during B.C. election. For serious.

No tunes for you: Grimes denounces sexism in music industry.
