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!

Election Day

The Vancouver Sun is reporting heavy voter turnout today in B.C.'s municipal elections. Turnout in Vancouver is expected to exceed 40% of registered voters, and the city's electoral officer had previously announced that he would have 20% more staf at this year's polls than there were in 1999.

Keenedy Stewart, a political scientist at Simon Fraser University, said that he'd be very surprised if the turnout exceeded 50%, hewever. The last time that turnout was that high was in 1990, when current B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell defeated COPE's Jim Green, who is running for a council seat this year.
