Links – Earls Port Coquitlam Adventure


Earls Port Coquitlam

So every once in a while as an oh-so-prominent local blogger you get to do something pretty cool. Tuesday night Earls Port Coquitlam hosted myself, TriCityVotes.com partner in crime Dave Zille, and Robin and Karen, the team behind local food blog eatwith.robinleung.com. We were treated to a preview of their Fall menu, including the very cool Albacore Tuna Poke Nachos (pictured) and to die for Gnocchi with Italian Rose Sauce. Lots of fresh ingredients and a whole lot of prep make the Earls fall menu the kind of stuff you would want to go out for. When Robin does his much more detailed review I’ll be sure to pass it on. Thanks to Luke, Amanda, and Patrick from Earls Port Coquitlam for the evening, and full disclosure, we got a fantastic free meal out of it.

Last week the mayors of Metro Vancouver approved the funding so we can finally start building the Evergreen Line. Of course, until someone puts a shovel in the ground we can’t be completely sure it’s going to happen, but it’s a major step. City Caucus points out that next on the list should be the Broadway corridor. Can’t say I disagree.

Talking Civic Election, TriCityVotes.com continues to add new profiles, and that will kick into high gear as the nomination periods begin to close this week. Jim Nelson writing in the Tri-City News makes a case for avoiding civic slates and continuing to vote for the people we know in the community.

Speaking of civic elections, suddenly local politicians become regular bloggers again, which is great for the links post. Mike Clay on Translink Funding, Selina Robinson on Collaboration and Community Engagement, Terry O’Neill is ripping Metro Vancouver, Michael Thomas went to Dancing with our Stars, Greg Moore on the Municipal Auditor General. If you are a candidate and you wrote a blog post this week, please share it in the comments below. And if you are a candidate in Port Coquitlam, get a website for crying out loud. Don’t make Michael, Greg, and Brad West school you all on how to put a website online.

Global BC has been running an excellent series called Generation How? “focusing on issues facing 18 to 35-year olds and how to make ends meet with the high cost of living in BC”. They one of the stories was about Port Moody, which you can see on the Global BC website. Another disclosure: my day job is working at Global BC. Lots of disclosures this week eh?

This year’s recipient of the Anmore Community Spirit Award is Tracy Green, check out the story at the Anmore Times.

Noons Creek is looking for photos of their events past and present, as their 20th anniversary is coming up and they’re putting together a scrapbook.

Monday was Thanksgiving, and 10th to the Fraser have a lot of things to be thankful for in New West.

Finally, as Michael Thomas mentioned, Dancing with Our Stars was this past Saturday, and Mike Clay was out there with his video camera capturing all the fun. Check it out on his Youtube channel, and here’s a sample with Dan Stroup and Barbara Lynn Copp.
