Joe Trasolini Murray-Clarke Connector Port Moody by-election

It’s by-election time! We think! Soon! Who knows. Anyhoo, Ex-Mayor Joe Trasolini is making the Murray-Clarke connector a cornerstone of his campaign. This week Trasolini is demanding that the provincial government get the thing built. Not a bad issue to fire at the Liberals in this by-election. We all know how much fun it is to crawl home along St. Johns or Clarke Street in the afternoon. Many voters in the by-election have a lot of time to think about what a connector would mean as they sit in their cars. Good move by Joe, and while by-elections bring out a lot of bluster on every side, you never know, we might get a bridge out of it.

Pacific Coast Terminals has signed a new 30 year lease on their 108 acre site on the Port Moody waterfront with Port Metro Vancouver. Did you know that PCT is actually the world’s largest export sulphur marine terminal? With Port Moody Councillor Diana Dilworth taking over as their Director of Community Relations, look for more opportunities for the public to learn more about what’s going on with those neon yellow mountains at the end of the Inlet.

Hope for Freedom and the Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Group are holding an Open House tonight from 6:30-8:30pm at Grace Church, 2606 Kingsway in Port Coquitlam. This is a chance for neighbours and community members to learn more about the shelter proposal and provide their comments.

This week our blogging councillors in Coquitlam are back. Selina Robinson is talking about hunting in Coquitlam, apparently there’s more hunting that goes on here than one would think. Terry O’Neill sat in on a Coquitlam bylaw adjudication hearing, which is way less boring than you would think. Read on to find out more.

Chomp Vegan Eatery recently celebrated their grand opening in Suter Brook. Chomp does vegan and gluten-free. As a recent gluten-free convert, I’m going to have to try it out. I was there for the opening briefly, but didn’t get a chance to eat. The Georgia Straight did however, and they have this story.

Finally, speaking of restaurant reviews, I found the two youngest restaurant reviewers in the Tri-Cities. They are the Abertoria girls, Aberdeen and Victoria. This week they do a video review of the Cactus Club in Coquitlam. They can’t try the booze yet, but they really know their stuff. Looking forward to more food journalism on their blog at
