Vision Vancouver: Geoff Meggs digs streetcars

While looking up info on all the Vision candidates, one item sold me on the idea of choosing Geoff Meggs: he'd like to see the downtown Vancouver streetcar system built by the city.

Not just "phase zero" as has already been budgeted for (the current council gave the go-ahead for a 'demonstration' stretch to be built from Granville Island to Science World), but the whole project.

Finally! Vision + COPE look like they'll play nice

It looks like (pending approval by the Cope membership) Vision, COPE, and the Greens have agreed to work together. Or, at least, not step on each other.

This is the best news in some time, cheers to everyone that has been sweating it out behind the scenes on this. I bet it hasn't been easy.. it always sucks that the 'left' can be so fractitious.
