I'm hoping that whoever takes over for the executive director -- and for his other cronies who believe in their own sense of righteous importance and entitlement -- will look again at these programs with clearer eyes and sharper minds. I truly hope we will soon see some positive changes in this long-running DTES agency that has served a lot of needy people.
If you aren't communicating in Chinese, you're missing an important audience in Metro Vancouver. And if you don't have a team member or members that speak Mandarin and Cantonese, you aren't getting a complete picture of the myriad and evolving ways to talk to Chinese-speaking Vancouverites.
Every single day we either lose or waste one third of our food -- that's 1.3-billion tonnes a year. Not only could we have fed people with that food but it's an astonishing waste of energy as well. Just think of all the energy that goes into growing, fertilizing, processing and transporting 1.3-billion tonnes of food a year. Harvest Power has a partial solution.
It's a well-known fact that real estate prices don't match our incomes out here on the West Coast. But if you eliminate the single-family home pipe dream and consider the growing popularity and relevance of condo living, it's not such a long shot to find a home the Vancouver millennial can afford.

As many writers can attest to, getting a script idea out of your head and onto the page isn't always so easy.
As an adolescent girl, I was awed by the notion of becoming an adult woman. Like Margaret in Judy Blume's classic coming of age novel, "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret," I was obsessed with all the details, particularly menstruation, and on a semi-conscious level hoped that there would be some sort of fanfare when the momentous time came.
The B.C. ministry responsible for jobs says the province has been clear on its job numbers. Yeah, clear as mud.
"Not Business As Usual" contemplates a new era in business -- one that realizes business as usual has pushed the limits of our planet's capacity, while concentrating financial wealth in the hands of a too-small minority. The film celebrates ventures and entrepreneurs that refuse to sacrifice social good on the altar of shareholder returns. For them, healthy enterprises embody a significant shift in the underpinnings of business that is "bringing humanity back."
I feel our health care workers and health care system is doing the best it can with the limited resources and support services they have. I am not sure what the solutions are but I feel the status quo is not working. I have been thinking about my experience in the hospital emergency room for a while. How can the system improve so the services are there in a timely and efficient manner when the people need them?
