It is not that I prefer Vancouver as it once was -- a smoggy foggy resource port run by white racist dads and their sons, from Boundary Road to UBC -- it is the path it has taken from that past that ails me.
People often talk of Expo (1986) and the Olympics (2010) as signposts in the history of this city. Another event worth mentioning -- one that focused on liveability over the promotion of neo-liberal space -- is Habitat (1976).
This summer author Lindsay Brown and Black Dog Publishing will release Habitat 76, a book that tells the story of the "Habitat process" and its presence in Vancouver.
