Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

I expected to see or hear something today about a very high profile visitor to Vancouver today. But nothing can I find

At around 11 am a calvacade passed along Russ Baker Way, and all traffic was stopped to let it pass. It was headed northbound. It appeared that the entire Vancouver Police motorcycle squad were invloved and a lot of Vancouver police cars too. The local mounties did not know much. One was behind me on the Dinsmore Bridge and made a U turn rather than get delayed by it. The vehicles included unmarked SUVs with black windows and a stretch limo.

Just curious is all

  2. Sounds like a funeral procession for a VPD or other important officer, to me.

  5. Last time I saw something like that, it was a Mongolian VIP. The only way I could tell was the tiny flag on the front of one of the cars. No idea about your particular sighting, though.
