What’s In a Name?

Vision Mayoral Candidate uses title in e-mail name

Maybe I’ve just missed seeing it. Wouldn’t be the first time.

And I always knew that Mr. Campbell was a hereditary chief of the Squamish First Nation.

But this is the first officially Vision e-mail documentation I’ve seen where Mr. Campbell uses his title this way. To me, it’s yet another welcome sign of maturity around identity in Vancouver.

I’m proud of our plan to build more, better public transit in Vancouver. . . .

    I propose the name Ascendance – and the demonym – Ascendant.
