Links – A Whole Lotta Anmore

Anmore, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody

We’ve got an Anmore heavy edition of the links today. I thought Anmore was just full of big ‘ol estate homes and the quiet of the woods. Turns out it’s the happening place in the Tri-Cities this week.

Last week we mentioned the lawsuit being filed against the Village of Anmore over changes to the in-camera meeting policy. This week, the Now breaks down the controversy a little further. The story involves bungled finances, top secret meetings, and the honour of Mayor Joe in Port Moody. Great reading.

On a happier note, the Anmore alternative news, as well as I, made it to the grand opening of Rhino Marketing’s new offices in Port Coquitlam.

The Anmore Vegetable Co-op is up and running again this year. It’s a great way to eat local and support local agriculture.

Translink has launched a new website called TravelSmart, full of tools and resources to help us make sustainable transportation choices. There’s lots of trip planning tools, one in particular that’s kinda neat is the map that shows you the transit stops in your neighbourhood and rates your area for walkability and transit access.

Speaking of Translink, CityCaucus writes that Translink has to get a way for us to use their GPS tracking system, so we can see when our bus is coming in real time on our smartphones. I second the motion, and I have it on good authority that this is in the works.

Golden Spike Days Festival are having a pub fundraiser tomorrow night at the Cat and Fiddle Pub in Port Coquitlam, 6pm. $15 for dinner and a beverage to support the Festival, you can’t go wrong.

The Coquitlam Junior Adanacs and Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse have settled their dispute over floor time. The team is still for sale though, but with the floor time settled it will hopefully make it a more attractive buy.

Volunteer Connections looks back at the Olympics of a year ago, and writes an ode to the army of “blue jackets” that help make the event so special.

And for the video of the week, we get a look at the Container Village project through the eyes of The Nehemiah Arts Foundation and local filmmaker Steve Tan. A great looking piece.
