Proving that doodling that can be rewarding, this 1965 North Vancouver High School graduate, cartoonist Lynn Johnston, is the talent behind the popular For Better or For Worse newspaper comic strip. Lynn Johnston was recognized as the first woman and the first Canadian to win the National Cartoonist Society’s Reuben Award.
*Moodyville: First European settlement on Burrard Inlet, located roughly at the current site of Neptune Terminals, it was bounded by St. Davids Avenue and First Street. As the north shore forests depleted, and Moodyville mill operations closed (1901), the village was vacated. In 1925 it was annexed to the City of North Vancouver.
October 23 Contact! The Vancouver branch of the Aviation League of Canada, an organization promoting the growth of the air industry, began formal proceedings today. Maj. D.R. MacLaren, DSO, was unanimously elected president at a meeting at the Hotel Georgia. Ten committees bristled with high-powered local names, including William Templeton (first manager of the Vancouver Airport); Gen. Victor Odlum; Gen. A.D. MacRae (his Hycroft is a famous Shaughnessy mansion); Stanley Burke, a Boeing official (not the CBC-TV newscaster); financier Austin Taylor; newspaperman R.J. Cromie, Duncan Bell-Irving and more.
Some ads have strict requirements according to the Vancouver Charter as to where and when they must be placed. Ads for Public Hearing rezonings, for example, must be placed in two consecutive issues of a daily newspaper, 7-14 days before the hearing (Van Charter 566 (3)). This naturally limits which publications the City can use.

In 1861 the first newspaper (New Westminster's British Columbian) appeared; in 1862 the first real hospital was built; a telegraph line went in in 1865 (its first message the assassination of U.S. president Abraham Lincoln); postal service began in 1867, and so did the first regular transportation service between New Westminster and Burrard Inlet . . . by stagecoach!

Brothers Fitzgerald and Samuel McCleery arrived September 26, 1862 and set up a farm in what would become the city of Vancouver. (And their farm would become a public golf course.) A month later a Yorkshire potter named John Morton saw a chunk of Burrard Inlet coal on display in a New Westminster shop window and wondered if near that coal there might be fine clay suitable for pottery. There was clay, but of a quality suitable only for bricks, and so Morton and two associates preempted 550 acresat a price equivalent to $1.01 an acrewith a view to becoming brickmakers. (They spent, some thought, far too much money for the remote "Brickmaker's Claim," and one newspaper report derisively described them as "three greenhorn Englishmen.") The "three greenhorns" built a cabin near the north foot of today's Burrard Street and began to raise cows. The property they had selected, now the West End of Vancouver, made two of them wealthy, one of them (John Morton) very much so.
There is no need to make sedan or limousine reservations in advance. For walk-out service at the Vancouver Airport Authority (YVR), all you have to do is exit the terminal from the domestic or international arrivals level and look for LimoJet Gold sedans and limousines.
As the official limousine service at Vancouver Airport Authority (YVR), LimoJet Gold’s sedans and limousines are parked curbside 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Just look for their stand when you exit the terminal on both domestic and international arrivals levels. Their sedans and limousines are identified by the gold letter “L” in the rear window. There is also a “Limousine for Hire” sign on site beside their limousines and sedans.
Tesoro, the West Coast’s largest seller of transportation fuels, and its partner, Savage Energy, want to convert an existing dock at the Port of Vancouver into an oil terminal to handle up to 360,000 barrels of crude per day.
Dubbed Vancouver Energy, the terminal would accept Bakken crude shipped by rail by way of Pasco and the Columbia River Gorge. It would be transferred to tanks in Vancouver. From tanks, it would be loaded onto ships destined for refineries in Alaska, Washington and California, though not , which has no refineries.
