I say we deputize Fairbanks to cover this one too!


I second that. Don't worry Fairbanks, we won't ask you to cover the beat outside of Colwood. We'll find someone else for Langford.

Alright, so there's a new hoarding around the Silkwind site. Pile driving has begun at Cap City Centre. I will snap pics of both tomorrow and post.

FYI there's no new hoarding around Silkwinds site. The new hoarding is across the street, where parkade for the hotel is.

I realize I'm a little slow on the post, just saw something that reminded me about this post.

Parkade for a hotel? I never realized there was a hotel out there.

Is this the site of the "Big Hole in the Ground" across from the Trillium retirement facility?

From high-rise condos to low-rise subsidized rental housing. You're living the dream Colwood!

Pretty sure this exists in close proximity in Victoria as well
