Evergreen Line Name Change

So maybe it won’t be called the Evergreen Line after all? News broke this week that perhaps Translink won’t name the new SkyTrain line the Evergreen. The final configuration of how the lines will flow together hasn’t been completely decided yet, but what is looking likely is that the Evergreen Line will actually be an […]

Ecowest Port Coquitlam bankrupt

Port Coquitlam home renovation company Ecowest recently filed for bankruptcy. Hundreds of homeowners are now out thousands of dollars for work that was never done. Unfortunately, I’m one of those homeowners. For a fascinating trip through my master bedroom, check out this story from Global News. The RCMP have also launched an investigation into the […]

Dont Vote Coquitlam City Hall

Seems the excitement of the provincial election will be with us for weeks to come in Coquitlam, as the haggling over whether or not we’re having a by-election continues. After the final absentee ballots came in, Coquitlam Councillor Selina Robinson now holds a 35 vote lead over Liberal Steve Kim in Coquitlam-Maillardville. This slim margin […]

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 […]

Port Moody Condos Evergreen Line development

The Tri-City News ran an editorial about the future of Skytrain centric development in Port Moody. The future of Port Moody is clearly in taller buildings with more people close enough to walk to the future Evergreen Line stations. This will undoubtedly raise the NIMBY element in Port Moody to greater heights. The thing is, […]
