VegFest Kelowna 2019 Featuring Speakers and Informative Workshops

VegFest Kelowna 2019 is the spin-off of last year’s Kelowna Vegan Festival – organizers changed the name to be more inclusive of people who are not necessarily vegan. VegFest Kelowna is 100% volunteer planned and organized, and entry is by donation with net proceeds and entry donations going directly to various animal sanctuaries like Arion Therapeutic Farm in East Kelowna….


An early use of the phrase "Green New Deal" was by journalist Thomas Friedman. He argued in favour of the idea in The New York Times and The New York Times Magazine. In January 2007, Friedman wrote: “If you have put a windmill in your yard or some solar panels on your roof, bless your heart. But we will only green the world when we change the very nature of the electricity grid – moving it away from dirty coal or oil to clean coal and renewables. And that is a huge industrial project – much bigger than anyone has told you. Finally, like the New Deal, if we undertake the green version, it has the potential to create a whole new clean power industry to spur our economy into the 21st century.”

Master planned neighbourhoods are all about affordability says the local development community. LEFT: This house in Upper Mission is priced at $2,500,000. The average price of master planned homes seems to be around $900,000 – way beyond what a regular BC family can afford. This house is from the “Terroir series” clearly referencing it’s strong sense of place lol. Maybe one day the hills will look like the image on the RIGHT: Late capitalism in full bloom (cover of Frederic Jameson’s book Postmodernism). 2.5 is a joke
