Eyecatching modern day totem pole built by sculptor Marcus Bowcott for the Vancouver Biennale. We cycled by it as part of a Vancouver Bicycle tour. Some people argue that it would have been even more befiting if the top car of the stack of five...More

responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row'
might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques
