Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Group

The provincial election is behind us, but nobody saw that one coming. The BC Liberals took the day while adding to their seat total from the last election. This includes 3 of the 4 Tri-Cities ridings, leaving Mike Farnworth as the lone NDP representative, barring a recount of the 105 spread in Coquitlam-Maillardville. One of those surprises was Coquitlam Councillor Linda Reimer knocking off incumbent Joe Trasolini in Port Moody. This means we’re looking at another council by-election in Coquitlam, or does it? With 18 months to the next election, Reimer is considering keeping both jobs.

For those of you that are fans of the Vancouver Whitecaps, I’m seeing a rumour of the launch of the north half of Coquitlam chapter of the famed Whitecaps Southsiders. Right now there is a single member, but we’re hoping that he’s opening up the membership again soon.

Blogger Lori from The Write Mama recently got nailed with a parking ticket on Granville Island. For her, this brings up the question of the future of pay parking in Port Moody.

Spring has definitely sprung in the Tri-Cities, and Tea with Me finds some evidence of that on Port Moody’s Shoreline Trail.

Restaurant review time! Van Foodies visits the Vesta Grill in Coquitlam.

If you’re looking through Youtube these days, you see plenty of videos with cameras mounted to bikes or cars doing tours around Vancouver. How about one done with an old Super-8 film camera? In the mid 1970’s?
