Happy New Year to everyone. The site experienced some technical difficulties to start the year, but is now back and functional, with a site redesign in the works.
This story referred to in this letter made the rounds on several newscasts, blogs and publications around the city to end the year. “Vancouver is a no-fun city…Vancouver isn’t world class…Vancouver is not capitalizing on the party spirit left over from the Olympics…City Hall has shown no leadership in getting people excited”…and on it went.
The fact of the matter is that it really didn’t matter what the City of Vancouver decided to do on New Year’s Eve…because it was inevitable that criticism would follow.
