CITY CAUCUS GIVES HOURABLE MENTION TO OLDTOWN NEWS
CITY CAUCUS DOT COM GIVES HONOURABLE MENTION TO OLDTOWN NEWS
City Caucus dot com is a new, very well written and well researched online news outlet. It has in my opinion become the news leader in issues affecting Vancouverites and addressing Vancouver municipal issues.
Other news sources pale in comparison to City Caucus and this might be due to the founders Michael Klassen who is the out-going Vice-Chair of the City of Vancouver planning Commission and Daniel Fontaine who served as Chief-of-staff to Mayor Sam Sullivan. These two men are good at what they do and they have become my daily news read.
Today City Caucus provided honourable mention to Oldtown News citing it in their best of blog features.
City Caucus mentions that I'm a contradiction in the Downtown Eastside mainly due to my work around supporting sex trade workers which they think makes me an ally of the powerful poverty industry forces down here yet I 'speak my own mind'.
City Caucus is right. I have many friends who are involved in the left side of the political arena who also claim that I'm a political contradiction and I love that. I actually wear this as a badge of honour because this means that I'm not willing to fall in lock step with political leaders who may think they know best. I think about issues but how I'm different is that I actually walk my talk.
I could easily have one of the countless cushy povertarian jobs floating around the Oldtown/Downtown Eastside neighborhoods, however, that would in my opinion, be akin to pillaging the poor and I won't do this. My integrity won't allow me to.
Anyway please consider adding City Caucus to your daily news read. You won't be disappointed. It is located online at http://www.citycaucus.com
