Here at Sustainable Cities we love birthdays and all things celebratory!
April 6th marks Vancouver’s 125th year of incorporation, and there’s lots to take in regarding our fair city’s milestone. The CBC has a great page up on its website that looks at our history, what we’ve done right, what we can do better and what could be next.
And if you’re not yet aware, the city will be celebrating its anniversary with a few events throughout the year.
Anyone interested in seeing the transformation the city has been through over the decades should check out the City of Vancouver Archives, where they have amassed a fantastic photo database of the city and the people whose lives and events shaped it.
Here at Sustainable Cities, we believe that cities are a mirror, reflecting the best (and regrettably the worst) of those who inhabit and shape it. How, after 125 years, do you feel Vancouver fares? We’d love to hear from you!
