Fresh baked “Fong Bao” from the oven – 方包出爐

Random musings & meditations straight from the oven. Hopefully some food for thought as well…

Little Mountain

Social housing has been a hot button topic in Vancouver for quite some time. While most people in the know agreed it is a serious problem, none of them could devise a long term solution that best address the need.

I don’t claim to be an expert nor do I pretend to know a lot about the subject. But having worked in 2 of the lowest income neighborhoods in Vancouver, I do see it first hand.

Little Mountain was an old social housing project that I’ve driven by many times but had no idea what it was until a few months ago when, by chance, I came across reports of its demise.

These were taken one afternoon in April while on my way home from work. Since then long time residents have vacated and chain-linked fences have surrounded the complex. Demolition seems inevitable.

Just another day in paradise?!
