Granville Bridge: It’s huge. Eight lanes wide, it was the only bridge in the region which was never associated with congestion. Until the even wider Port Mann opened. There have recently been some proposals to dedicate the centre lanes of the bridge to a linear park. These pictures are of course all from my flickr...
Why can’t we be like Zurich?: I retweeted this video this morning and as I sat watching it, I kept thinking about that question.

Climate change is not a left-right issue: Climate change shouldn’t be a left-wing versus right-wing political issue. I might take some flak for saying this, but “progressives” who claim only they have the correct ideas to fix the world are guilty of terrible hubris.
