On The New “No Rain” Policy And Dumping Champagne On Poets

by Sean Orr | Everything is political: Liberals admit health infrastructure spending promises were ‘for political purposes’ only. Yeah, plus every other thing in their campaign.

Crumbling Strathcona building forces neighbours to evacuate. More displacement? Egads. Let’s just blame Cuchillo and Pidgin.

Relax Vancouver drivers, you can handle another bike lane. Relax baby boomers, you’ll be dead soon.

Related tweet of the day c/o Steve Burgess:

Families First: TransLink is eliminating free travel on Sundays and holidays for family members of monthly pass holders. “He noted some of the programs were rolled out at a time when TransLink was trying to increase ridership.” So they are no longer trying to increase ridership? Is that because of the ass-backwards funding scheme of tying transit to gas taxes, meaning the more people take transit the more money it loses? (the answer to that rhetorical question is “yes”).

Office building installs bike racks, tickets cyclists who use them. Another classic case of Vancouver facadism.

Gay ghetto: Put rainbow crosswalks in the richest areas of Vancouver. “Oh, there you go, bringing class into it again”. “Well that’s what it’s all about, if only people would listen” (the 23rd time I’ve referenced the Constitutional Peasant).

Speaking of class, Michael Mann blows up on Reddit thanks to this caption.

Headline of the Day: Brit boy band The Wanted questioned by cops for dumping champagne on Canadian poet and Ninja Turtle writer. For real.
