Business in Surrey: a quarterly report from Business in Vancouver

Bollywood, cattle farms, Dragon's Den and Morgan Crossing featured

Business in Vancouver has just published on March 27, 2012 their quarterly Surrey Report. I try to summarize their product since it won't have a high online profile and gives a sense of what the greater metropolis is thinking is going on this side of the river.

I've included the links to the stories, but you'll need to be a subscriber to access them. The stories themselves are not new, or unfamiliar to those who follow local issues, with the possible exception of the investments in cattle farm market information.

This is how Vancouver business sees Surrey.

Hurray for Bollywood

Introduction

Info on South of the Fraser River: Surrey, Delta, White Rock, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Fort Langley. Maybe a bit of Abbotsford, just for fun.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
