Squamish: Squish to Swish?
Tyee Bridge

The carnival is camped out on the waterfront this weekend, on Nexen Canada Inc.’s old chemical plant lands, and five other West Coast Amusements employees are clustered at a nearby table. But aside from them, the place is pretty much...

Environmentalism: From Dispute to Dialogue
Tony Wanless

Ever since Greenpeace was formed more than three decades ago to protect the environment, B.C. has been a constant battleground between governments, industry and hundreds of environmental groups. The latter range from multinational outfits aiming to protect the forests, rivers or oceans, to local, single-issue neighbourhood groups.

Government Wake Up Call
Bill Good

Recently, I’ve been struck by how often our leaders and bureaucrats are turning a blind eye to problems that they have the power to solve. Take, for instance, their ­attitude toward parents of autistic children, whose plight I have written about several times.

British Columbian Travel: Going Coastal
John Lee

It’s 8:30 p.m. when the dented, steel-grey carriages of the Skeena, the VIA Rail train serving the northern route from Jasper, begin their final wheezing crawl into Prince Rupert, the rainfall capital of Canada’s multi-fjorded Wet Coast. Far from a pampering Rocky Mountaineer excursion, this old-school locomotive feels like a perambulating 1950s diner, complete with a side order of cozy home-style charm.

Climate of Change
Andrew Findlay

When David Wayne, manager of Stanley Park’s Brockton Oval, turned out the lights and slipped into bed beside his wife on the evening of December 14, nothing could have prepared him for the fury that would awaken them in the inky darkness of the following morning.

Traveling to San Antonio, Texas: Lone Star Strut
John Lee

My setting combines the decor of a staid Victorian library and the kind of bristly, black-and-white cowhide chairs that only Texans find attractive. It’s as good a place as any for a media reception for a regional wine and food...

Youth Golfing: Green Teens
Ian MacNeill

According to a Royal Canadian Golf Association (RCGA) study released last year, there are six million swinging Canadians, a national participation rate of better than one in five. What’s more, Canadians are spending almost $13 billion a year on the...

Middle East Travel: Currying Flavour
Andrew Findlay

A man pushes through the fray and introduces himself as Mandar Singh, the owner of the horse. Apparently, he’s planning to fetch 25,000 rupees (roughly $5,000) for the virile Marwari stud. Men, some obviously making mental calculations, stare at the horse in silence. The animal is about as unattainable to...

U.K. Travel: Dublin
John Lee

A handful of dishevelled all-night partygoers, their arms wrapped firmly around each other, are weaving homeward past the Georgian storefronts, serenading themselves with tired, scratchy voices. I move aside, zip up my jacket and stomp past, feeling as though I’m looking for something but not knowing what. Rounding a corner, I...

Florida Travel: Taking the Mickey
John Lee

It’s just before 7 p.m., the sun is languidly setting behind Cinderella’s Castle and the assembled media are awaiting an alfresco announcement launching Disney World’s latest space-themed ride. Stuffed with mewling and puking minors for much of the day, the Orlando park has been closed since 3 p.m. for this private...
