And the clothes are great! I love them--comfortable, cool, good-looking. Thanks to Allison Miles for writing a story on this local designer and her business.

How about free healthcare, sex education and free birth control? How about more money into education? I can guarantee you that spending money on all these things will help reduce the population.
Wonderful festival. I was amazed at how well organized it went. Looking forward to next year.
I agree entirely with Edith Ann. Pedcor should earn that point by proposing an affordable housing initiative in an area that actually needs revitalization, not by asking city officials to lie and to compromise the integrity of the city. Pedcor should stop trying to make it sound like it's doing this for Victoria's benefit. Make no mistake. Pedcor is doing this for its own benefit. This corporation needs to work with the city to find an area in actual need of revitalization--there are plenty of them.
Perhaps Will Armstrong could direct the city to target legitimate areas in need of revitalization and work with companies that want to build low-income housing.
There is plenty of land in Victoria in areas and neighborhoods that need revitalization and aren't on flood planes. I applaud John Kaminski, Victoria's Planning Department Director, for his decision not to allow the land to be labeled as needing revitalization. That would be ridiculous and fraudulent. If the city wants the points, it should work with the developer to find appropriate land.
Thanks for publishing this.
Really great article.
What do you call the Indian cardiologists? Easy. Doctors.
