If you buy a croissant, muffin, scone, or something else at Uprising Breads Bakery (1697 Venables) on June 13 and 14, you could be helping to stop Enbridge from building its Northern Gateway pipeline.

This is my morning bakery. Everything they do, they do right. This is a perfect example of that!

The Metro Vancouver transit referendum is sometimes framed as being just about a few major rapid transit projects. But the Mayors’ Council included a 30 percent increase in HandyDART service in the plan—adding 100 HandyDART vans to the present fleet of about 300, along with major bus service improvements for the whole region.
Returning to isolation of past not an ethical option, HandyDART riders argue.

The fact they did not get this information out, until now, just makes me believe that they are incompetent...

Which actually angers me because I would gladly support this service.

The biggest problem with Transit is it is impractical and nearly as costly as driving a car, in the outlying areas of the Lower mainland. To get from Port Coquitlam to Surrey Memorial Hospital it would take me nearly an hour by bus. at a cost of eight dollars for the day, while my car costs, less gad, eleven dollars and takes only a fifteen minutes.

For my son to get to SFU would take an hour plus from Pitt Meadows. These are unreasonable times.

Perhaps the bosses at Translink should actually ride their buses and see how bad the system really is.
