Unlimited Growth Increases the Divide


That's what the sign on the building in the foreground says. That's BC Hydro looming over it in the next block. In the years we've been gone, there has been a fair bit of unlimited growth, all right, and its ugly stepchild, unlimited demolition. Note that the building in the foreground is surrounded by ... well, empty lots.

I took this picture on a long walk from Strathcona to the Vancouver Community Net offices on Dunsmuir, so I walked past this scene on my way to this scene on the next block:


the tranquil oasis that's the public space in front of that same BC Hydro building. "Unlimited growth increases the divide" is actually art-speak for "the contraditions are sharpening & deepening."
