Links: Never thought “Coquitlam” and “Hard Rock” went together


Hard Rock Casino Vancouver Coquitlam

The Boulevard Casino has never really had a very strong brand. I think it was some kind of New Orleans-type thing? Named because it was on United “Boulevard”? I can’t be really sure. The most important things seemed to be plenty of slot machines, senior citizens, the Red Robinson Theatre, and an out of this […]

Leaving Home – Artist Studio Space in the Tri Cities


Port Moody, the City of the Arts, is home to many creators and their studios. A lucky few have their own studios but often artists work from home, repurposing a spare bedroom or basement area into working space. But what happens when there simply isn’t enough room to wield the brush, or if equipment needs […]



Should Coquitlam have a by-election? Yeah, I guess.


Miss America Coquitlam by-election

Tonight (Monday, July 8th, 2013) at 7pm at Coquitlam City Hall, Coquitlam Council will have a pretty important vote. Former Councillors Selina Robinson and Linda Reimer both won seats in the provincial legislature. So before we had eight councillors in Coquitlam, now we’re down to six. It’s become a bit of a tradition in Coquitlam […]

What’s Happening in the Tri Cities: Soak Up the Music and Dance

Summer is for moving and grooving in the Tri Cities despite the torrential rain. Get practising for seasonal puddle-jumping with the kids (only another eight-and-a-half weeks to go).

A Sweeter Food Waste Cart from BinBath.ca


Binbath.ca Port Moody Compost Bin Cleaning

When Port Moody introduced its food waste carts a couple of years ago, I must admit I let out a loud groan. Having grown up in Scotland in the seventies, when programs such as The Good Life were inspiring urban hippie wannabes to get back to the land on their own domestic plots, I knew […]
