Urbanism done right in Vancouver’s Olympic Village [Weekend Watch]

Here is a video segment I did on what I love about living in Vancouver’s Olympic Village.for Sam Sullivan and  his campaign for the BC Liberal nomination in Vancouver-False Creek

While I’m a political junkie, I’ve never  been too active in partisan politics before. I’m also by no means a fan of the current BC provincial Liberal government  but I  think it is important to support intelligent and thoughtful people when they put their name forward for office.  Former Vancouver mayor Sam Sullivan is one of those people.

Sam Sullivan

No matter your politics, Sam has played a large part in reshaping how Vancouver thinks about our city, both as mayor—he was the deciding vote on the Canada Line, involved in planning and approving Vancouver’s Olympic Village (where I now call home), and spearheaded the city’s EcoDensity program; and more recently through his Global Civic Society  and Vancouver Urban Forum.

I believe the insights and experience he has gained in his political and community work in Vancouver are much-needed in provincial politics. Check out what he has to say, and if you feel comfortable doing so, support Sams’ campaign for the BC Liberal nomination in Vancouver-False Creek . Note the deadline for membership is January 29, 2012.

Here’s Sam’s full campaign video:
