A spokeswoman for Vancouver International Airport said snow removal operations were in full effect Monday morning and the airport was fully staffed and equipped to handle the winter weather, but as of 11 a.m. PT there were close to 50 flights listed as delayed.
Some flight cancellations and delays are reportedly due to poor conditions at other airports.

Harbour Air and HeliJet cancelled flights out of Victoria Harbour Monday morning, and Victoria International Airport reported that it was facing a shortage of deicing fluid.
The airport authority said that if temperatures stay cold, many more delays and cancellations could be expected.
Power outages, school closures

Snow continued to fall across much of the South Coast Monday, with accumulations varying greatly depending on location and elevation.
While some sea-level areas have seen almost no snow stick over the weekend, parts of Vancouver Island and the Fraser Valley have accumulated up to 30 centimetres.
Heavy snow overnight across parts of Vancouver Island forced a number of school closures.
Poor weather conditions also contributed to a number of power outages.
BC Hydro spokeswoman Simi Heer said thousands of customers in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley lost power Sunday night, including 4,300 in Surrey, 3,100 in White Rock, 4,100 in Maple Ridge, 12,000 in North Vancouver and 2,000 in Burnaby.

"It is no measure of good health to be well adjusted to a sick society" - Jiddu Krishnamurti
Power to the imagination, was the slogan in Paris 1968, where students stood up to authoritarian, patriarchal rigid, old fashioned thinking, and that feeling still is mine!
To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable open-mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.
A Retort, from Gerald Massey's Lectures c.1900; often cited as They must find it difficult, those who have taken authority as truth, rather than truth as authority.

Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
Robert A. Heinlein
"“An oligarchy of private capital cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society because under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information.”
"We've been borrowing from the future, and the debt has fallen due. The science says we have physically entered a period of great change, a synchronized, related crash of the economy and ecosystem. The Great Disruption will ultimately take human society to a higher evolutionary state. We have the opportunity to build a society that represents our highest capacities... that works with rather than against nature. This crisis represents what may be a 'once in a civilization' opportunity for a step change in human evolution, but one driven consciously rather than biologically. We are the people we've been waiting for. This is the time."
