Ouch.
A person knocked unconscious by a closing elevator door, another reportedly tossed to the ceiling by a speeding elevator, and a child’s boot shredded when caught in the teeth of an escalator — all incidents involved elevating devices reported to the B.C. Safety Authority last year. While elevators and escalators are meant to move people efficiently and safely, freedom-of-information documents obtained by The Vancouver Sun show that’s not always t...

Thought foreign students were supposed to bring in money?
The B.C. government will launch this year an international student scholarship program totalling $150,000 for Chinese, Japanese and South Korean students looking to enter schools in BC, officials said Friday.

Sweet words of advice to eagle Dad whose mate was electrocuted. He's been left to raise two big chicks all on his own.
First, allow me to offer my heartfelt condolences on the death of your wife, who was your soulmate and the mother of your two beautiful babies.

Vancouver and Victoria seem to be outliers when it comes to the acceptance level for marijuana dispensaries.
As Vancouver attempts to control a proliferation of marijuana dispensaries by regulating them, other B.C. cities have taken stringent measures to stop the storefronts from popping up in the first place.

Fabulous writing job by National Post's Brian Hutchinson. Wow!
The 61-year-old architect said he 'wanted to make a point' about aboriginal culture, colonialism, and 'the blind acceptance of English language conventions in academia'

The story behind all those for sale signs on Granville, Cambie and other Vancouver arterials.
A row of seven bungalows on West 54th Avenue has just hit the market and the asking price is $28.1 million — or between $3.6 million to $4.5 million each.

Is B.C. turning into a dumping ground for dangerous Yankee dogs? What do you think?
The founder of the Paws For Hope Animal Foundation is calling for government regulation of animal adoption groups that are bringing dogs into B.C. from U.S. animal shelters. “We are having large and unstable dogs being brought over the border and placed with families with no temperament testing being done or any attempt to match the dog with its adoptive family,” said Kathy Powelson.

I'm sure the folks at Grandview-Woodland would be happier with this plan. But happy enough to endorse it? And will it be enough density from the city's point of view? We shall see..
Vancouver’s Grandview-Woodland neighbourhood will densify but not in the way the city had initially proposed two years ago, if recommendations from a citizen’s assembly are adopted. Towers in some areas would be much shorter than city planners had initially pitched, while density would be eased into parts of the neighbourhood through extra suites in homes, coach and laneway houses, and zoning for townhouses.

Hyper-diverse Richmond has changed faster than any other Canadian city. Veteran Sun reporter Douglas Todd explores the impact.
The City of Richmond is the centre of a global demographic explosion virtually unprecedented in human history.

Amazing that longshoremen do not need criminal record checks to work at the Ports. No wonder Hells Angels and other gangsters take the jobs. Part two of Kim Bolan's Crime and the Waterfront shows how easy it is to use the ports to smuggle in drugs.
How could the Port of Vancouver be misused by organized crime? It’s not that hard, according to encrypted messages intercepted by police that detailed an exchange between one Vancouver man and the Ontario-based leader of a major international drug ring three years ago.

Important information you will want to know if you are a parent with a kid in public school.
About a year ago, my colleague Tara Carman published some interactive maps showing the measles vaccination rate at schools across the Lower Mainland. Well, today Tara got hold of updated vaccine data for the 2013/14 school year. Her story is here. The bad news is that Fraser Health, one of the two health authorities in the…

City of Vancouver moves to regulate the wild west world of pot sales. About 80 dispensaries now operate without licenses in the city and council says it's time that ended. It will cost upward of $35,000 for a dispensary to operate in Vancouver and they can't be close to each other or schools. Read updated story here.
Vancouver is about to become the first city in Canada where the business of selling marijuana will be regulated and permitted.
