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 […]

Hotel Minibar

Lou Sekora is a lot of things, including a very good politician. The man knows how to pick an issue to create enough outrage among a very small number of voters to make sure he’s elected every time. Now as we all know, name recognition is 95% of the battle to be elected in chronically […]



Links: Lougheed Safety Needs Improving


Lougheed Highway Riverview Coquitlam

The stretch of Lougheed Highway along Riverview always has me gripping the steering wheel a little tighter. This past Tuesday a driver died in a collision along that stretch, and Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart is calling for barriers to be put up so people aren’t able to cross the centre line. While there isn’t a […]



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 […]

Links – UBCM gets off to a high start


Union of BC Municipalities Convention

This week is the Union of BC Municipalities convention. Many of our civic politicians are there to catch up with their counterparts, get some good or not so good ideas, and make resolutions that are ignored by senior members of government. On Wednesday, the UBCM voted in favour of decriminalizing marijuana. I’ve spoken out in […]



Time for Backyard Chickens in the Tri-Cities?


Backyard Chickens Coquitlam Port Moody

At the end of August Jon and I visited the PNE with the kids. While we were there we came across the Vancooper. It’s a custom-built chicken coop for backyard chickens. The maker advertises it this way: It’s the bylaw-compliant, pest-defieant, not-too-giant, and exceptionally pliant coop for the self-reliant and epicurious client. I was smitten. […]
