I hope that’s not your dog. It’s great, isn’t it? It’s a 2003 sculpture by Huang Yong Ping called Amerigo Vespucci. It’s actually named after an Italian who documented the discovery of America. The outline of the urine is a sketch of the U.S. Is this your regular look? I...

GVRD Agriculture Land Reserve: Space Invaders
Philip Hochstein

Limited land supply is a common contributing factor to both problems. Yet the Greater Vancouver Regional District’s (GVRD) 1996 Livable Region Strategic Plan designates about 70 per cent of the region as a Green Zone, to be protected from urban growth. And a large chunk of that is accounted for...

Mark Marissen: On the mark
Paul Willcocks
