Will the Enbridge decision from the feds today spark B.C.'s next 'war of the woods?" The Vancouver Sun's veteran environment reporter Larry Pynn reports. 
Lawsuits, civil disobedience and political organizing are among the tactics environmentalists could use to block completion of the Northern Gateway pipeline project. Opposition to the Enbridge project is so strong in B.C. that the number of people prepared to engage in non-violent civil disobedience could swell to many times that of Clayoquot Sound if the project is approved, said Ben West, oilsands campaign director for ForestEthics Advocacy in ...

Kinder Morgan has had oil tanks at the foot of Burnaby Mountain for 60 years, without incident. Now plans to add far more has fire officials raising alarms. Is the concern warranted?
The Burnaby Fire Department warned of a terrifying scenario Wednesday involving a potential explosion at Kinder Morgan Canada’s Burnaby Mountain tank farm that could result in toxic fumes and a tide of molten crude rolling down toward nearby residents and an elementary school. But the company shot back that the scenario is unrealistically based on a worst-case event in which the company, which has had no tank farm fires in 60 years of operation, ...

Theft in B.C.'s wealthiest postal code. Thief, a bear who broke into a car to steal cookies, aptly named Great Bear Patties.

Good news for Vancouver. 
Visual effects company Sony Pictures Imageworks will relocate its head office from Culver City, Calif. to Vancouver and move into a new 74,000-square-foot headquarters in Pacific Centre next year, the company announced late Thursday.

Judging by all the comments, there is little sympathy for these dogs who pitched off a ledge while off leash in an area where they should not have been. I have two pups though and feel bad for them. 
When Devin Drewitz watched his dog Jake casually jump onto, then disappear over, a waist-high ledge framing an outdoor walkway at BC Place Stadium, he assumed the Siberian husky had found a patch of grass to sniff on the other side. But as the resident of East Vancouver walked toward the ledge — located near Gate B and Terry Fox Plaza — the seriousness of what had just happened gradually became apparent.
