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!

Civic Election: 16 days to go

Links to the Vancouver political parties' and candidates' websites:

The ruling party, Vancouver's civic Non-Partisan Association
The NPA's links page, which leads to their various candidates.

Coalition of Progressive Electors
COPE's platform page

An old name revived by former NPA members, the Vancouver Civic Action TEAM

The Vancouver Green Party, back at it again
The Green Book for 2002 -- possibly the most detailed platform of any civic party.

They're young and admit to not having all the answers. But you've gotta give them credit for humility, and for boldness at the same time! Presenting Ryan "the Pillar" Millar and Sarah Albertson of the Dance Party Party!

Political gadfly, Terminal City scribe, and all 'round shit disturber Brian Salmi is running for Council. Vancouver Sun editorial writer Charles Campbell says that he's saving a vote for the man sometines known as "Godzilla." Will you?

Chronic campaigner and Marijuana Party founder and mayoral candidate Marc Emery

George Chow is running for council because to him, the ruling NPA are too soft on the Downtown Eastside. Chow's campaign slogan: "Safe neighbourhoods. Public Order." I guess if you want Vancouver to turn into authoritarian Singapore...

Offbeat mayoral candidate (and van.general regular) Golok Buday. As an existentialist candidate, he runs, therefore he is tired... and also is.

City of Vancouver Election Information. Anything and everything you wanted to know about how to vote, where to vote, if you're eligible to vote... there are also links to complete results from the 1996 and 1999 Vancouver elections.
