Roland Clarke tries on an Apple Watch in Vancouver on Pre-Order Day – April 10, 2015
In the DTES Literacy Roundtable Community Consultation, we will discuss ways folks currently access information, where are the gaps, and what is required to connect people and the agencies which support them to access and disseminate timely and appropriate information. This will build on what we learned about our recent Downtown Eastside Digital Access Forum.
Join Mable Elmore with guests including environmentalist Sven Biggs.
Learn more about Mable’s commitment to oppose the proposed pipeline expansion and the need to grow Canada’s renewable energy sector.
Mable Elmore believes Vancouver East needs a strong voice to speak out unequivocally against the Kinder Morgan pipeline plan, and that there is overwhelming evidence to show the risks far outweigh any benefit for our community. Mable understands the need for urgent action on climate change and investment in Canada’s growing renewable energy sector.
As some of you might be aware, Mable Elmore – MLA for Vancouver-Kensington NDP—is now seeking the NDP nomination to become the next federal MP for Vancouver East. Mable is deeply committed to social justice and proactive governance. Mable also has a sincere commitment to getting young and new people involved in the political process.

Hobocoaster is an excellent choice for all your pet and house sitting needs!
I’m a professional House/Pet sitter seeking a new situation in the greater Victoria or Vancouver areas. Willing to travel anywhere in BC if expenses are covered. House sitting, pet sitting (live in), hobby farm or B&B/Inn management.
About me: single, non-smoking, non-partying middle-aged writer (employed). Former innkeeper, former horse and dog trainer. Human and veterinary first aid training. Loves animals, have looked after everything from guppies to Percherons. Very self-contained and quiet, and neighbors love me. Great security, as I am awake most of the night working. Particularly looking for situations with a built-in exercise factor, eg chores, dog walking, hobby farm care, patrolling property. Decent gardener if given specific instructions to follow (it’s my weak point). Self-starter.
References out the wazoo after a year and a half of doing this professionally. Experience and local references specifically in the Okanagan, Victoria, Vancouver, Tofino, and Powell River.
Rates vary depending on duties, number of pets, etc: generally speaking, fees start at $10 per day plus $10 per pet, but negotiable particularly for longer term bookings. And no, fish are not $10 apiece, don’t worry! Available immediately thanks to an unexpected cancellation. Let’s talk.
