Mayor tells Pecha Kucha audience $60 million in investments came to city since Olympics
Two thousand people filled the Queen Elizabeth Theatre tonight for the 12th Pecha Kucha and the City of Vancouver was the focus of tonight's presentations.
The City provided a free bike valet service and CBC provided space for two wheel parking. The event was promoting the City's "Talk green to us campaign."
Biking has gone up in Vancouver by 180 percent in the last ten years. (I think I got that right.)
The city has brought in $60 million new investment dollars since the Olympics. Mayor Robertson quoted that number.
My favourite quote of the night:
"Talk to your neighbours, because there are endless things in this city that need to be talked about."
