Secret Vancouver Canucks Hideout Revealed!

By Richard Eriksson on May 10, 2004 - 1:57pm

Steve Tannock says he knows where some of the Swedish Vancouver Canucks hang out:

I’ve decided that Honjin, the sushi restaurant in The Roundhouse courtyard is the secret headquarters of the Vancouver Canucks. Either them or Sweeden. 4 of the last 5 times I’ve eaten lunch there, I’ve seen a Canuck player there — each Sedin (I suppose it could have been the same one twice), Naslund & now today, Mattias Ohlund, with his family. Perhaps not incidentally, the sushi there is excellent.If you want to stalk a Canuck, read this

Roland, we need you to review that restaurant and interview whichever Canuck happens to be there!

Vancouver RAV Cancelled

By Boris Mann on May 10, 2004 - 1:22pm

I had to rub my eyes and pinch myself when I woke up to the news that the controversial white elephant to be called the RAV light rail line between the Vancouver airport, Richmond and Vancouver [was cancelled]. Could I be hearing what I thought I was hearing? The project was being scrapped due to insufficient funding? Remarkable. The dreamy optimism that so often covers big-ticket public works projects usually clouds over funding shortfalls with that so-Canadian belief that “something will happen” or “someone will step in” to make up the difference. Someone and something, of course, would have to be the provincial or federal government.
holycola.net: Next stop: fiscal sanity for the Vancouver RAV line?

Having just come back to Vancouver, I have to get myself up to speed with all these issues. The Arbutus corridor rejection, after my friend Evan patiently explained the complete lack of density, now makes sense.

But don't we need a non-car way to move people around? Aren't the B-Line buses already really crowded? Enlighten me, please.

My suggestion: floating air cars. Where's George Lucas when you need him?

I like it when the weather is great on the weekend and gloomy, and cloudy on the weekdays. But it's not too cool. No need to break out the scarves thankfully. Scarves are a necessity in Vancouver 3/4 of the year. Luckily this is the 1/4 of the year when we can go scarf-less!
