Archived Dialogue Projects and Bios to be deleted from website

Dear Dialogue Alumni,

We are currently refreshing our Semester in Dialogue website and will be launching shortly. We wanted to alert you that we will no longer be archiving student projects and student bios on our new site. We have found that alumni would prefer not to have their dated bios on the web and there have been numerous students who have contacted us to remove their individual student projects.

Please note that information on past student-run dialogues will continue to exist on the new site.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Brenda at or 778.782.5075. Thank you.

Time to GetOnBoard for Better Transit!

Referendum? Time to GetOnBoard for Better Transit!

GetOnBoard BC is a diverse coalition of residents, students, workers, businesses, academics and other groups who all have an interest in improving public transit. GetOnBoard BC is busy preparing for the transit referendum which will be held within a year in Metro Vancouver. Our membership continues to grow, with more organizations coming on board.

Creating a world-class transit system throughout Metro Vancouver with new rapid transit lines and many more buses will not be cheap. It will only happen if we make it an issue no politician can ignore.

GetOnBoard BC is a non-partisan coalition working to create a cleaner, safer and smarter transportation system by making transit a top priority for all levels of government.

Would you like to get involved? GetOnBoard needs volunteers to promote our message, we need content creators, event planners, researchers, anyone with a passion for transit or someone who’s just curious enough to come out and drink beer with us. If you would like to help promote growth in transit go to
