Port Moody’s Rubens Chocolate


Stop! Walk away from that shelf of boxed chocolate-flavoured bunnies.  Have you read the ingredients on those?  They might be nicely packaged and have cute candy eyes, but if you saw what they’re really made of, you might think twice about letting your kids eat them this Easter season.  And trust me, there are way […]

Links: Evergreen Line Stations Get Names


Burquitlam Station Evergreen Line Coquitlam

So there were a lot of happy politicians this Saturday as the names of the Evergreen Line stations were announced. They all pretty much describe the places that the stations are, so nothing too terribly off the wall, or non-descriptive (“Gateway” anyone?). The completion date has been set for the summer of 2016. So if […]

This isn’t just a tea […]
