Links – Anmore fights and other signs of summer


Village of Anmore and Anmore Sign

Today I’m realizing that I haven’t had any Pajo’s Fish and Chips in Rocky Point Park this summer. This clearly is a personal crisis I must rectify soon, in the meantime, we’ve got a few links for you.

Anmore politicians are fighting again, this time over voting machines needed for the civic election in November. The disagreement dissolved into “a tirade of offensive language”. This is the same town that couldn’t agree on a returns officer for their byelection, and the province had to step in. Seriously Anmore, seriously.

Longtime area MP and MLA Dawn Black is retiring from politics and won’t be seeking reelection in the next provincial election. After 40 years in politics, Dawn is looking forward to spending more time with her grandchildren. We wish Dawn all the best.

Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini addresses speculation about his future in politics.

Part of me doesn’t want to include this story, but I should put on my big boy pants and suck it up. The Stanley Cup is coming to Anmore on Monday, August 15th from 9am to noon. The visit is courtesy Bruins scout (and former Vancouver Canuck) Dean Malkoc. I’m very happy for Dean and Anmore for getting the visit, and any other year I would be much more supportive. It’s just bringing back memories that the Canucks only had to win one out of two games, and we’d all be wearing Stanley Cup Champion souvenir t-shirts. I’m going to stop thinking about this now.

Finally, Youtube user mikeschmeee was pedalling his bike along the trail at Buntzen Lake, when he came across a bear. There have been some unfortunate incidents between people and bears this summer, so keep your garbage inside everyone.
