Point Grey Road: The Last Word

As far as I am concerned there is no more to be said about the new bike route from the Burrard Bridge to Jericho Beach.

This video is stunning. And you have to bear in mind while watching it that this project is the one that Councillor George Affleck has committed to tearing up if the NPA is put back into power at City Hall at the upcoming election.

Students go to school feet first

Richmond Review

As usual a nice little puff piece and all sorts of good intentions. But no mention of the policy change that ended the notion of the neighbourhood school. At one time schools had catchment areas. Now parents have the “right” to send their kids anywhere. So are we surprised that more parents – and high school students – drive a lot more? Ending the stupidity of this change might well recreate the spectre of people moving to be within the catchment of a “good school”, but that is, in my view, the lesser of two evils.
