Links – Evergreen Line Talk and Summer Fun

Bear at Hummingbird Feeder in Coquitlam BC Canada

The funding formula for the Evergreen Line continues to dominate local discussion. Well, maybe not as much as the contents of the latest People Magazine (Harper Seven Beckham? What the…), but you’re not here for the baby-naming habits of Soccer Spice. Links onward!

Premier Christy Clark has now come out in support of the funding formula for the Evergreen Line, after expressing reservations earlier in the week. For a BC Liberal party that is usually a good steward of spin, this seems badly stage managed. Kinda sad we expect stage management in politics instead of honest dialog.

Port Moody councillor Mike Clay has blogged about the Evergreen twice in one week now, talking about the transit goodies that had to be spread around Metro Vancouver in order to get the Evergreen Line approved. City Caucus also weighs in on the Evergreen.

Speaking of City Caucus, they are looking ahead at the civic elections in November, and they don’t see a lot to get all that excited about.

The City of Port Moody is looking for input on their Community Sustainability Plan. Go to, fill out a short survey, and you could win some snazzy prizes.

Speaking of the City of Port Moody, it’s always fun to find out what kind of money everyone’s making, and this week the Tri-City News cracks the T4s.

Now to offset that article, Selina Robinson breaks down a week in the life of a typical Tri-Cities councillor. To say they’re busy for the money they bring home to do it would be an understatement.

This week the Vancouver Observer asks what would make Vancouver a better place to live. Housing affordability seems to be near the top of their list.

The ArtsConnect blog looks at local artists teaming up with the Port Moody Station Museum to bring history to life.

The Port Moody Ecological Society is looking for some volunteer help at the Noons Creek Hatchery on July 18th and 19th to do some Fin clipping.

The Anmore Times tells us that the new Heritage Mountain middle school has been approved to get a daycare on the property, so daycare is coming to Anmore.

It’s summer, and Miss604 has her event rundown for events around Metro Vancouver in the month of July.

New Port Moody blogger Tomboy That Wears Makeup heads out to Three Dogs Bakery in Port Moody.

And finally this week, a video from Youtube user caloval. It’s bear season in the Tri-Cities, and it seems that hummingbird feeders aren’t safe from the prying paws of the local bear population.
