This post focuses on the history of colonial settlement of Vancouver, however we respectfully acknowledge that Vancouver is part of the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.


What's with all those the colourful, Lego-like containers that have been chugging through Strathcona on the Burrard Inlet Line since the beginning of 2017?

Dear Madames/Sirs:

RE: Noise complaint by the Strathcona Residents Association re: Burrard Inlet Rail Line


If you ride the #22 bus, you've probably noticed how unreliable it's been since January 2017. Several times a day, our dear #22 is held up by trains that block Venables Street.


If a train is stopped or shunting for more than 5 minutes at a time, and is blocking a road that someone is waiting to cross, it is against federal regulations and you can report it.


Is there finally a solution to the intractable arterial debate? Richard Taplin’s presentation at the September meeting has been turned into a comprehensive report that details all the many downsides of the William.


On August 2, 2018, the SRA's Centerm Port Working Group received a letter from the BC Environmental Assessment Office updating us on the EAO review of the Centerm Port permit and offering to meet with us to discuss our concerns.
