The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

Vancouver mayoral candidates agree on something!

(besides that they'd really like their respective posteriors in the Mayor's chair, that is.)

NPA mayoral wannabe Jennifer Clarke, vcaTEAM nominee Valerie MacLean, and COPE golden boy Larry Campbell do at least agree that there should be an inquiry into the police's handling of the disappearnce of over 50 women from the Downtown Eastside over the last twenty years. They all also agree that the inquiry should happen after the criminal invesigations have wrapped up.

Beyond that, there are differences. Clarke seems reticent about the potential costs of an inquiry. MacLean wants answers at any cost, and Campbell has long been a proponent of an inquiry of the police's handling of the missing women. This may yet be an issue in the upcoming campaign.
