…of ‘hipsturbia’ & civic holiday Mondays…

….”Priced out of downtown Vancouver, millennials are building ‘hipsturbia'”….

SOMETHING ABOUT….Port Moody (a Vancouver suburb) used to be the place you’d pass through on your way to Buntzen Lake. But in the past couple of years, the city has transformed from strip malls to locally sourced mom and pop shops – and the hipster culture that entails.”

Apparently “an urbanizing of the suburbs is under way. In Langley, Port Moody, Burnaby and New Westminster, the millennial cohort is finding, and creating, urban pockets that fit a lifestyle demanding transit, affordability and walkability.”

A good thing, I think!

It’s a civic holiday Monday….otherwise known in BC as British Columbia Day!

Interestingly enough, British Columbia was the last province in Canada to establish an August Monday holiday not until 1974!

Cheers to a fine Monday of rest & relaxation that sings—-Oh!!!! Canada!!!!
