a cen­tury of Van­cou­ver ac­tivism

If it seems like lo­cal ac­tivists stage a protest ev­ery day — on ev­ery is­sue imag­in­able — you’ve seen noth­ing yet. Turns out, Van­cou­ver’s ac­tu­ally in­cu­bated so­cial change move­ments for more than 100 years. The Mu­seum of Van­cou­ver’s new­est ex­hibit, City on Edge: A Cen­tury of Van­cou­ver Ac­tivism, chron­i­cles their pas­sion and bat­tles. Open late Fri­day-Satur­day (10 a.m. to 9 p.m.); Sun­day and Mon­day 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (1100 Chest­nut St.) Go to mu­se­u­mof­van­cou­ver.ca
