Vancouverism vs. Motordom

Larry Beasley, Vancouver’s previous planning director, gave a lyrical address for the Munro Lecture in the Segal Centre at SFU last night.  And not just with words.   Images flowed with his remarks, changing in mid-sentence, always illustrating his points.   I’d say it was the best use of the photos I and others have taken.

He kindly referred to an essay I had recently written for SFU’s AQ magazine, describing some of the transportation history of Vancouver, and why we are the way we are.
