If there’s one guy from Vision with a catchy name it’s… TONY TANG!!

What will Mayor Gregor cut or not cut next? It could be anything! 

Gregor “Juiceman” Robertson is TOO sexy

A very sexy submission from Daniel J Pierce who says:

I just wanted to submit my contribution to your blog. I made this last night from some old footage I had lying around of Gregor at the Yogathon in 2009 I believe. Prepare to see a sexy, sweaty, Gregor.
Thanks, Daniel!

Does the artisan jam syndicate have too much pull at city hall? What about the lobbyists representing locally-grown berry farmers, how deep does their influence run?

Gregor Robertson’s Attack On Hotdogs

What else don’t we know about Gregor Robertson’s attack on hotdogs? When will we know the truth about these backroom deals with shadowy BBQ taco cabals? We want answers, Gregor.

The Time Raiser Was A Success!

Thanks so much to all the artists and organizations that donated their art or cultural services to our Time Raiser event. Your support resulted in 33 new volunteers pledging a total of 336 volunteer hours for Vision Vancouver’s re-election campaign. It was incredible to see so many items up for auction from such a diverse cross-section of our city’s creative community. It’s a testament to how strong our community is, but there is still much work to be done to make it even stronger. Today, Vision released their platform to support local artists and grow the creative sector

Thank you to our donors:

'A Portrait of Mayor Gregor Robertson' by Robert Mearns for Olio Festival’s Classic Comedy Roast of Mayor Gregor Robertson
Robert Mearns is an endlessly talented Vancouver painter who graduated from Emily Carr University of Art & Design in 2006.
Artist Statement:
In this, the ‘End of Western Civilization’ age, where seemingly all of history is readily available at our fingertips via the internet, youth culture is suddenly defined by the constant ability to pick and chose, putting pieces of past ethos together, creating a mismatched mash-up of ever-evolving cultural fragments. These fads, opinions, and aesthetics are tossed away just as easily as they’re donned and absorbed, making the individuals that embody them creatures of constant flux. Through my portraits, I try to encapsulate glimpses of these shifting bodies, focusing on idiosyncratic expressions …and social hiccups. For instead of traditional portraiture, defined by Edward Burne-Jones as “capturing expression of character or moral quality” I aim to animate something intimate, such as the moment before a sneeze, when, for a brief instant, a person lets their guard down.
