Is the city doing anything to collect amenity money from developers as part of the [...]
Q. How many shelter facilities are there in Toronto? Name them. Name them? NAME THEM? What is this, some kind of Reach for the Top game, Municipal Issues version? Mind you, I was on Reach for the Top (the antecedent to Jeopardy, for those who didn’t know) when it was just a high-school competition, back when [...]
Q. What happens to my beloved Buy-Low if/when Beedie Developments goes ahead with their plan to redevelop Kingsgate Mall, per the recent article in the G&M http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/home-and-garden/real-estate/kingsgate-mall-tagged-for-redevelopment/article5152540/ A.

Q. What’s the story behind the vacant lot on Robson at Broughton? A. A lot of people seem to want to know this. In Vancouver, no vacant lot goes unnoticed. When I googled “empty lot Robson and Broughton,” it brought up about half a dozen references to it on various blogs around town. I guess [...]
Q. Can you tell me if you have any further information on the Gold Medal Club in the Olympic Village? The city rental buildings (2) and the Coop (1) are not allowed access to that fitness centre. With strata fees going up 30% in some buildings, you’d think the city of Vancouver would be eager [...]

Someone should make Chloropleths or Isormorphic distorted maps by population of voting age narrowed down to Census Tracts. Male, Female. Self declared Ethnicity, language at home etc.
Income from Revenue Canada by FSA
FSA (Forward Sortation Areas First 3 letters of postal code)

“The Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts, a residual fragment of Vancouver’s rejected freeway system, closed Feb. 5, 2010, for the first time in their 39-year history.”
And no one cared! Close them forever and improve the east van neighbourhood! If the west side could REFUSE the use of the arbutus rail corridor for improved rail transit we in the east van can DEMAND the ELIMINATION and REJECTION of the concrete elevated eye-sores.
Good-Bye Viaduct. Good Riddance!
