Flowers are a colonial invention and must be eradicated at every opportunity.

Lisa Helps' yard had some flowers in it once when I drove by, lol. You can even eat some flowers.

Hey! My Mt. Doug > Mt. Tomie zipline project is still on schedule. We don't need these other distractions while it goes though the environmental review.

 

VHF must be up to his old tricks:

 

North Shore Rescue (NSR) is sounding the alarm after receiving a photo of someone slacklining between two peaks in a dangerous location on Mount Strachan, above the Cypress Ski Resort.

NSR posted the image on social media along with the warning: "EXTREMELY dangerous and could kill our members flying in the area. We and the RCMP also fly at night — there is zero chance of seeing one of these lines at night."

^ I am sure that the Mayor and much of council would be quite happy to not see any tourists. Tourists represent privilege and GHG

I especially hate when tags cover old ghost signs. The painted sign on that building says "BURNES HOUSE".

We'll ignore the economic activity leading to funding services for the unhoused.

At least there's a chance the tags will be dealt with before tourists arrive again.

Or that the taggers will get a grant from council to share their artistic self-expression more widely. It's better than ACAB, at least.

well atleast the taggers made it onto the local news (with their faces blurred ofcourse!) to say that it all started as fun and a joke, and now they are making money off of it selling stickers/bags/clothing with their logo on it.. what a heartwarming news story... making money off of tagging.... and sticking it to the city at the same time...

Who opens a new tourist attraction during a pandemic? Meet Canada's most optimistic entrepreneurs

 

 

For example, the District Wine Village is set to open in B.C.'s Okanagan Valley in June. The $25-million development will offer visitors food, live music, and a selection of wines from 16 different small, artisanal producers.

 

In Nova Scotia, new owners of the Cape Smokey ski hill are completing the first stage of a $100 million revamp, to create an all-season resort. The new gondola is set to open July 1, giving guests what's described as "gorgeous and unbelievable" views of the Cabot Trail.  

 

And in downtown Toronto, a unique attraction called "Little Canada" will soon be selling tickets to see a miniature version of the country.

district wine village sounds great.  too bad nobody in victoria has any vision.  we could have a wine festival here that would be amazing.
