Vancouver Headlines: June 21st

June 21, 2012 | by  |  Vancouver Headlines

Let the insanity begin! Vancouver has approved a pilot project allowing a single “scramble” crossing to be installed on Robson Street. Nothing says “summer in the city” like crossing the street diagonally.

Speaking of transportation, the city has released its new Transportation 2040 plan, one which calls to reduce the number of car trips into the city by 60 per cent over the next 30 years.

Starting this weekend, it’s TD Vancouver International Jazz Fest time, marking its 27th anniversary. As of 2012, the festival has officially surpassed the Scotiabank Theatre, the Telus World of Science, and the Benson and Hedges Symphony of Fire on The Dependent‘s list of best local offerings named after major corporations.

And, as of tomorrow, the locked-out employees of the Rocky Mountaineer will have been on strike for an entire year, with little to show for it at the negotiating table.
