Every Wednesday our friends at The Georgia Straight give us something new to share with you here on the blog: a preview of what you’ll see on the front of – and inside – their paper the next day. As you likely already know, they’re the source for lifestyle and entertainment stories in Vancouver. Along with their robust online presence they release a printed publication which is distributed all over Vancouver each Thursday.
This issue is the 2,431st and the cover this week is the risk of oil by rail. After the Lac-Mégantic inferno one year ago this month, Metro Vancouver mayors worry about a huge increase in trains pulling explosive crude oil through their cities.
HERE is a portal with stories for the Squamish Valley Music Festival. And below are some links to stories featured on the cover, which you can check out before you grab the physical paper:
- Trains moving oil through BC raise fears of another Lac-Mégantic disaster by Travis Lupick
- Evolution of Gaming exhibition lets visitors play games of the past by Blaine Kyllo
