Once again we’re co-sponsoring Sam Sullivan’s Public Salon at the Vancouver Playhouse! As you likely noticed in the title, the former mayor of Vancouver is now a member of the legislature. I INTRODUCED you to the fact that he was running in the riding I live in a little while back, then Cory Ashworth INTERVIEWED him for his Vancity Fair project, and at the last Salon (which I coincidentally attended with Cory!) we noted that he didn’t mention it once while he was hosting. It was pretty classy of him, and it certainly didn’t hinder his efforts to get elected in last night’s provincial election.
And speaking of class, there are so many great speakers on the bill for the upcoming Public Salon on June 5th. Personal standouts for me include restaurant critic Alexandra Gill, Offsetters co-founder James Tansey, and historian Henry Yu. Tickets are available HERE. See you there!
