Random Local News

Just because I’m in Malta doesn’t mean I’m not keeping up with the local goings-on. Mind you, I did miss that whole DemoCamp thing. I must have been snorkeling and missed the memo:

  • According to the supporters of the Whitecaps downtown stadium proposal, apparently the Gastown-based opposition has conceded, given up or come onside. I don’t know how true that is, but their website is gone.
  • Via MetaEffecient, Victoria is building a mondo-huge, green community comprising over 1000 residences on an otherwise bleak part of the upper harbour. What took them so long? The land is waterfront property that’s a stone’s throw away from downtown. Will it be Yaletown 2.0?
  • Via Jules (who apparently only orders pizza online–I didn’t even know you could do that), GreenDimes will stop your junk mail, plant a tree and conserve water for CAN $37. Apparently it only works on junk mail with your name on it, though. Who will stop all the random fliers which I received and never, ever read? In our apartment, there was a fistful every day that went from the mailbox to the blue bin.


  1. I discussed this with my local canada post worker one day and she told me that she actually hates delivering unaddressed bulk mail and that all I had to do was put a note inside my mailbox saying “no junk mail please” and the letter carriers would respect that. It’s been a year and indeed, I haven’t got a stitch of junk mail since then.

  2. Hey Darren- thank you for including GreenDimes in your post! We really appreciate your taking the time to tell others about our services.

  3. My spouse and I found you from a yet another page plus thought I might check points out on الإحتباس الحراري وأثره على البيئة | هندسة نت . We like what I view thus now I’m a fan. Appear toward exploring your internet website once again. Incidentally what about Muammar Gaddafi breathtaking media stories what do you really think . Kudos … Irrigation System Maintenance
