“The Olympic village is a billion-dollar project, and the city taxpayers are on the hook for all of it.” — Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson
An open letter to, a Tyee Blog.
Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson recently said the City of Vancouver is "on the hook" for a billion dollar blunder. We were wondering whether CityCaucus.com was going to be on the hook, too? As in The Hook, your special section of thetyee.ca devoted to politics and political issues. I cannot locate an email address for you at The Tyee website, so I hope you don't mind this digital smoke signal from CityCaucus.com.
The Tyee has always strived to be an non-mainstream source of news and commentary, particularly on political matters here in British Columbia. It is probably the province's most-widely read source of online alternative media. The Tyee has boldly strived to be a place of free and open debate of important topics of the day, and advocated for alternative viewpoints to counterweight big media.
You currently feature Frances, 24Hrs Irwin Loy, (who both hail from mainstream media) and a few of your regular stable of in-house writers. You even have a category dedicated to municipal politics that we would feel very at home in.
I just thought I'd wave madly so you'd notice us.
