Its a start and it will keep the Vic Westies out ;) but others can advance down the Pat Bay Hwy. Or sneak in the back door via Nanaimo.

I lifted this from Facebook. I don't know who made it:


My 4-storey condo building has become one of the strip of highrises. Thankfully I just missed "Crackheads Beware".

Apparently I am lumped in with the Trendy Hippies; as I was only 10 years old in 1970 and thus have only hazy remembrances of "hippes" of any stripe I will have to Google the concept in order to determine if this is a Good or Bad thing.....:D

I like how "university kids" blends into "old, sick and dying". I guess that's the basement suite segment of the Venn diagram.

I was there on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in the summer of 1966.

It was far out. The experience did not have a lasting effect on me.

The "whores" should be in the "weird seudoindustrial downtown" section, not along the Gorge waterway, unless...

The map is weird, opinionated and dated. James Bay hasn't been referred to as "Gay Bay" for probably 20 yrs. I think it got that because at one time the JBI was a gay favorite bar.

Yeah I see her all the time. At first I thought it was her name and that she was waiting for someone to meet her for the first time. She was by Mayfair mall. Last time I saw her she was by Save on.

Hello, We're a family with young kids who are moving to Colwood, BC in new year. We're trying to decide which school to send the children to. We will be living closest to Colwood Elementary, but other possibilities would be David Cameron, Wishart, Sangster, and maybe some others? If you have an opinion of the schools, please let me know which you think is best and why. Thank you!

I'm not sure where you're moving from, but here most all schools are about the same, it's not like in the US where there's huge differences in funding/quality between schools. One school might have a principal with a good reputation, another might have an amazing grade 4 teacher, another might have a prettier library, but overall you'll be safe with any school. About the only reason to be fussy about elementary schools is if they are going into a french immersion program.

Just send your kid to the closest school, it lets them walk or bike to school on their own, which is arguably far more important for their development than the minor differences between schools.

If you are living closest to Colwood Elementary then that is where your child is expected to go. You have the option of requesting an alternative school, but that is based on availability and is not guaranteed.

Yeah, it's actually quite hard to send your kid to the wrong school, and rightfully so.

When I was little I lived right on the border of two catchment areas and managed to switch due to all my friends going to the "other school", but that was something my parents had to actually fight for, it was something that had to be reviewed and approved.
