Here’s my early file to the Globe on this.

Stay tuned for more.

  • This is probably a discussion for another day, but I feel it is worth noting now…

    Which is…..the difference in the quality of the comments and the tone of the discussion here, in the threads of a blog (ie. the fever swamps) vs. those which can be found in the thread building on the tail end of FABula’s Globe piece (ie. the supposedly more knowledgable pro/establishment media).

    And guess who wins?

    Me, I figure it is most definitely NOT the pro/establishment media ‘sponsored’ (but clearly unmoderated) discussion….

    If the health authority can hire forestry executives to run the healtcare system, the city can hire hemotologists to run the city.
    Though I wonder how the hire of the former DM of health will affect the city’s relationship with Vancouver Coastal – Penny and Ida Goodreau (VCH CEO) were kinda chilly when working together previously – so it will be interesting to see how they get along in this new relationship. The city and the health authority always experience significant tension and Penny will be able to call BS on VCH due to her thorough knowledge of the health authority’s budget and internal politic.

    Great article Frances. Picking up on the Marion Lay string is especially interesting – her own experience with the City generated a couple headlines at the time I recall. I imagine there is more digging to be done on this story.
