Just because I’m in Malta doesn’t mean I’m not keeping up with the local goings-on. Mind you, I did miss that whole DemoCamp thing. I must have been snorkeling and missed the memo:
- According to the supporters of the Whitecaps downtown stadium proposal, apparently the Gastown-based opposition has conceded, given up or come onside. I don’t know how true that is, but their website is gone.
- Via MetaEffecient, Victoria is building a mondo-huge, green community comprising over 1000 residences on an otherwise bleak part of the upper harbour. What took them so long? The land is waterfront property that’s a stone’s throw away from downtown. Will it be Yaletown 2.0?
- Via Jules (who apparently only orders pizza online–I didn’t even know you could do that), GreenDimes will stop your junk mail, plant a tree and conserve water for CAN $37. Apparently it only works on junk mail with your name on it, though. Who will stop all the random fliers which I received and never, ever read? In our apartment, there was a fistful every day that went from the mailbox to the blue bin.
