Links – Walmart Port Coquitlam

Welcome to the Thursday links, if you like shopping, local politics and geese, you’ve come to the right place.

First up, a fantastic post by Kris Cyganiak at Port Coquitlam Walmart set to Open June 2011 in Fremont Village brings you up to date on the Walmart being built in Port Coquitlam. Two things in particular, it will be a Walmart Supercenter, with expanded groceries. It will also feature green building design elements, including a “green roof.” Love them or hate them – and let’s face it, it’s hard to find anyone without an opinion of Walmart – we will now have plenty of ways to get a whole lot of stuff in that corner of Port Coquitlam.

Coquitlam councillor Selina Robinson gets the new year off to a good start with a post about treating each other with civility in public life. It’s a reminder we can all use every once in a while.

The City of Port Moody has some fancy new automated garbage trucks, and they are calling for artists to wrap them in something fancier than a city logo. Full details on how to submit your design are on their website.

The debate over New Westminster transportation continues at 10th to the Fraser with part 2 of Matthew Laird’s well researched post on the United Boulevard Extension.

Curious as to what provincial leadership candidates your local mayors and councillors are endorsing but not saying they are endorsing? Mayor Joe likes Christy Clark and Mike Farnworth, and Port Moody councillor Bob Elliott originally wanted someone as left wing as possible, but he’s been talked into Mike Farnworth.

The City of Port Moody is being a hard-ass about their sign bylaw, and the Coquitlam Farmer’s Market is paying the price. Everyone, please support your local farmer’s market, and especially the kettle corn guy. The dates for the Port Moody Winter Market are the following Sundays from 10am – 2pm: Jan 23, Feb 6, 20, March 6, 20, April 3, 17.

The Port Moody Station Museum is showing us the history of the Port of Port Moody.

And finally, we have yourtimevideo on Youtube with a lovely meditation on our feathered friends in Rocky Point Park. Well, they’re your friends until they see your bag of kettle corn from the farmer’s market. So beware. See you next week!
