QUAY QUAKES! Are you ready for a big one?

Japan has taught the entire world a major lesson about life – it is full of the unexpected.
We watched with sheer horror as buildings swayed and a massive waves removed entire towns …and thought …could that happen here on the Quay?  After all we are blessed to live on the shores of the Fraser – could a Tsunami happen to us? 

Both Quakes and Tsunami’s are not only possible here at the Quay but according to some science is probable at some point in the not-to-distant future.  Recent events have renewed the conversation of preparedness among residents of the Quay. 

Do you have a kit in your car or condo?  Do you have a plan to assist your neighbours?  Does your building have an ‘emergency meeting place’ or an ‘evacuation plan’?  Should the Quay exercise a mock emergency drill specific to the Quay in tandem with the City? 

Big questions for The Big One.  Have your say on how you and the Quay can best prepare for a Quay Quake.

DOG GONE IT....should dogs be leashed or unleashed on the Quay Promenade?

Summer is coming and so are the dogs.  With Winter starting to give way to the warm breezes and floral bulbs of Spring, the profileration of the dog population is about to explode on the the Boardwalk. 

Some residents are concerned that dog owners will ignore the 'leash-always' rule imposed by the City.  The Quayside Community Board (QCB) is extremely pro-dog but recognizes that this incredible walk-way is to be shared and enjoyed by everyone ...including those that are intimidated, frighten or simply do not like dogs.

Do you think the QCB should continue its vigilance and inform owners of the rules through the website and on the Boardwalk?  Will you tell the 'unleashed' to leash-up when you see them?  What do you think we can do to get the message across in a nice way?
