Container Village

Over the past couple of weeks we kept you updated on Coquitlam’s rezoning of 3030 Gordon, to allow a permanent homeless shelter to be built on the site. While the approval from council is great news, there is still a long road ahead. There is no funding for the shelter yet, and we can expect […]

The Evergreen Line remains a hot topic here in the Tri-Cities. With construction slated to begin in early 2011, and a funding shortfall of $400 million, it’s still not clear how this project is going to happen. In September, Transportation Minister Shirley Bond met with Metro Vancouver mayors to discuss TransLink funding. At that meeting, […]

There are approximately 12,342 municipalities in the Lower Mainland, so the media coverage isn’t as concentrated as it is at the Federal and Provincial level.
