The municipal elections are coming to the end and I’m excited to vote tomorrow for the candidates I believe in. No matter what you policies and positions you support, or what side of the political spectrum you fall on, there’s one thing we can all agree upon: casting your vote really does matter!
October 20, please vote Boltenko Anna for North Vancouver City Council. #anna4council#voteboltenko#cnvelection2018#cnvvotes#cityofnorthvancouver#northvanlife
According to the report created by Research Co British Columbians believe electing younger people to City Councils will change their communities for the better.
When presented with a choice of statements about younger candidates running for municipal office, 77% of British Columbians agreed that “I’m hopeful that younger elected officials will help change my community for the better.” That included 87% of 18-34 year olds and 70% of 55+ respondents.
We need people at the Council table who will be living in our communities in 30 or 40 years. It’s a perfect storm where younger voters are switching on to municipal politics at the same time as older voters are coming to see younger candidates as a source of hope, not fear.
I want to see younger people step up and lead, and truly believe that younger elected officials will change their communities for the better. #millenials#leadership#cnvvotes#cnvelection2018#voteboltenko#anna4council#northvan#northvanlife

Bronzeville's Regal Theater (1928-1970). In the early 20th century, Bronzeville was known as the "Black Metropolis", one of the nation's most significant concentrations of African-American businesses.
The name “Bronzeville” was suggested by James J. Gentry, a theater editor for the Chicago Bee. He said that African-Americans’ skin color was closer to bronze than black. The name was popularized by the Chicago Defender, a black newspaperwith nationwide circulation.
The name “Bronzeville” has thus been in common use since the 1930’s. The new name may have reflected a desire by the neighborhood’s residents to define themselves on their own terms.

I want the City of North Vancouver to thrive in the coming decades and to be a welcoming community for everyone that put public interest first, and is collaborative and transparent.
To encourage openness to public, transparency and inclusion, I would encourage the council to: * Provide better access to Council: schedule evening meetings of Council to offer people with daytime jobs the chance to speak to issues; establish regular meetings with residents for Mayor and Councilors (besides official Council meetings). * Revamp public consultations. Incorporate processes we had in 90s where residents were able to vote on options for their neighborhoods. * Work for more open data on land use planning, for example how much growth is possible under current zoning. * Provide civic resources in multiple languages and expand offerings to help residents new to Canada. Translation assistance is an easy and low-cost way to help new residents integrate. * Create a culture of collaboration among North Shore municipalities instead of serving for my-interests-first decisions by establishing regular meetings with all mayors and councils within the region.
RSVP to @vineyardvines’ event of the season! Join us at @vineyardvines in @grandboulevard with @magnoliablossomwines October 18, 4-6pm. Taste lite bites, sample wine and enjoy live music benefitting @seasideschoolofficial. #GrandBoulevard#VineyardVines

It’s long past time for amalgamation. We already share a school district, recreation commission, policing and transit. We’d still need the same number of district workers, only they’d be under one bureaucracy instead of two. One thing is not debatable, the City of North Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver need to sit down and to learn how to work together without all the current political bluster and baloney. Collaboration not amalgamation! #amalgamation#cnv#cityofnorthvancouver#cnvvotes#cnvelection2018#northvanlife#voteboltenko
The average North American meal travels 2,400 km from farm to plate. Food transportation has a significant and growing impact on climate change, road congestion and air pollution.
The concept of the 100-mile diet forces a mental shift from eating globally to think more locally to ensure everything you eat is within a 100 mile radius of your table. Buying locally produced food and beverages reduces ‘food miles’ that are harmful to our environment and our health.
Over 5,000 farms in the Lower Mainland- most of them family-owned- are growing fresher, tastier, and often more nutritious food than imported produce. Supporting BC’s growers and producers protects farmland, family farms, and contributes to a healthy local and regional economies.
In North Vancouver when shopping for groceries or dining out, look for food and beverages grown or produced closer to home. Supporting local food and beverages producers means strengthening our local food system and ensuring a supply of fresh and healthy food for your family-now and for future generations. #elections2018#cityofnorthvancouver#northvancouver#localfood#eatlocal#shoplocal#voteboltenko#anna4council
