Links – Twas the Night Before The Night Before Christmas

We’re heading into our holiday break here at theV3H, but I’ve got a few links to share of cool things we’ve seen this week. I’m attempting to have snappy segue’s between the links this week. Let’s see how I do.

First off, a good way to get mentioned in the links is to say nice things about us. The Community Volunteer Connections blog made us one of their “three passionately local Lower Mainland blogs,” along with the awesomely-named I Was Told There’d Be Cake from the Coquitlam Public Library and our friends at 10th to the Fraser. Thanks to Kelly and the fine folks at CVC, we love you too!

Speaking of 10th to the Fraser, this week MP Fin Donnelly weighs in on the United Boulevard Extension. In a nutshell, Fin likes consultation and Skytrain, which is pretty hard to argue with.

Moving on to roads that have actually been built, the City of Port Moody officially cut the ribbon on the new bridge over Noons Creek on Ioco Road. Although it was a bit of a hassle with single-lane closures throughout the construction, the new bridge has room for sidewalks and bike lanes, and new design enhances the stream capacity below.

Speaking of pillars of the community, The ArtsConnect blog reflects on the year that was for the arts in the Tri-Cities, and are already looking ahead to events in 2011.

Friend of theV3H and travel writer extraordinaire Jack Christie tells us about the Christmas happenings at Van Dusen and Buchart Gardens.

Speaking of Christmas in the Tri-Cities, Rae Clevett Photography shows us a Christmas scene that looks ripped straight from the photo albums of my childhood.

Staying in the Tri-Cities, the holiday train made it to Port Moody, and John Grasty of Real Estate Evolved was there to meet it. The video is courtesy Yourtimevideo.
