Links – City of Port Moody Responds to Farmer’s Market


Port Moody, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam

Welcome to the links, I’m sure most of us have been enjoying the stretch of non-rainy weather we’ve been having. I would say I felt sorry for the winter blast everyone else across North America are experiencing this week, but I’d be lying. Onto the links from the balmy Tri-Cities! Last week we mentioned that […]



Water’s Edge Festival 2011


The Water’s Edge Festival was created as one of the BC Spirit Festivals. And that tradition is continuing this year.

Links – Farnworth is in, and Coquitlam to Vote Online?


Well, the worst kept secret in local politics ended last week when Mike Farnworth officially declared his candidacy for the BC NDP leadership.

ArtsConnect’s Cultural Directory


Do you know about ArtsConnect? If you don’t, you should. And I’m not saying that just because I happen to work for them. Although I do – I’m their webmaster. But that’s not really the point, because they have a lot to offer even if you don’t personally keep their website up-to-date. ArtsConnect is the […]



Earth Day in the Tri-Cities


Tomorrow is Earth Day, and there are many ways to celebrate here in the V3H. Or, if that’s not your style, there are still plenty of other ways to get out and have a good time, too. This week I am trying a new format for these posts to make them easier for me, and […]
