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!

The Chinese Connection

The Vancouver Courier's Mike Howell reports on the evolution of politicians with Chinese-Canadian connections in Vancouver, from independent Bill Yee in the early '80's to the present.

A companion story by Howell takes a look at the perceived preference of Chinese-Canadians for the conservative Non-Partisan Association; the NPA have been running at least one, and sometimes more than one Chinese-Canadian council candidate since 1988, and the NPA has done well in areas like Chinatown and Strathcona in recent elections.

COPE, Vancouver's left-leaning civic party has, on the other hand, not done so well among recent Chinese immigrants, but seems to do better among second- and third-generation Chinese-Canadians...
