ExpressionsNightCafé What do you think we should do on Saturday?

We d n e s d a y Open-Mic nights at Expressions Café have By Nelson Becker become a hit with our community. We have consistently packed the house with 20-30 performers each night. There is a wide range of experience and style. For some, it is their first time on stage, while others have produced many CDs and may be visiting us from different communities. Another great and new event coming up next Thursday, April 24

is Rhys, otherwise known as DJ Volpix. DJ Volpix will be bringing his spinning styles to our venue for his first public appearance. It will also be our first presentation of electronic dance music. Come down and support Expressions Café, DJ Volpix, and find yourself dancing to the beats. As for this weekend and next, we will be open as usual for coffee, tea, and cupcakes. Friday night is games night. We have scrabble, GO!, cribbage, chess, catan, apples to apples, and any other games you

might have! Doors open at 6 p.m. and we’re usually there until 10 p.m. sometimes 11 p.m. at the latest. Saturday night we have nothing special planned, so come down and join me for a cup of coffee. Do you think we should transform Saturday nights into ‘obscure movie night?’ Old movies, jazz movies, foreign films, documentaries? What would get you out of the house and down to Expressions on a Saturday night? Let me know by email at express@ expressnews.bc.ca

Opinion&Editorial My Opinion

by Spencer Pollard

Heroes and Gender it can be done in movies

Most superheroes are portrayed by men but not all of them. Despite the higher tier heroes such as Batman or Superman getting all of the attention, the female superheroes are just as important in the overall scale of things. But why would it be important to have both male and female superheroes? Well gender equality of course. It’s more popular to see the male in this position but super heroines such as Wonder Woman prove that it isn’t entirely male dominated. These heroines are capable of carrying gripping storylines just the same as their male counterparts. If

or novels, I don’t see why comic books can’t be treated the same. Like in virtually… well everything, gender equality is of the upmost importance. We may be singing the praises of the male dominated landscape of comic books now but the few gripping female protagonist we do have our up to par with the boys. Don’t knock comic books just because they appeal to a younger demographic. Give some of them a read and get invested in some good story telling. Hopefully some of the ladies get to portray some compelling characters.

Love letter to a departing restaurant Dear Editor, Good morning Nelson. I’m having breakfast at Kings on the day they close forever. There is not an empty table and ten of us were here before 8 a.m. opening. Many have come here for decades. This place and the dedicated staff who work here and feed us are hugely loved and will be dearly missed.This place is a landmark and an important piece of local history. How many cups of coffee, tea, how many breakfast

specials have been served here? How many life changing decisions supported and made here because for so many of us this is home? I want to say thankyou to all the staff who work here. You have nourished my body and soul through a tumultuous time in my life. Thankyou Janet for listening to my endless worrying about my blue broke down truck. With love and respect, Bryhre Cormack

Opinion&Survey City Council needs recording

All Committee of the Whole and City Council meetings should By Nelson Becker be streamed live and recorded for viewing later. This is important, so that our community is able to view, not only the decisions our Council makes, but also the discussions leading up to those decisions. These recordings should be made available through the

City of Nelson website, possibly via YouTube links. We do have a history of live broadcasting City Council meetings through Shaw Cable. Because of this private company’s resources, they are unable to record every meeting. It’s important to do this over the internet, instead of Shaw Cable, because many people have cut their cable and many people do not watch

TV; however, mostly everyone has access to internet. The installation of cameras could be done in such a way that there would be no need for an operator. After the installation is complete, there could be no further costs. Having access to an archive of City Council meetings would allow for transparency and a more knowledgeable and involved community.

Do you agree?

We should be recording every City council meeting?

Watch for this week’s survey question in the Monday Mini. If you are not a subscriber to the Mini you can join our mailing list here. Results and comments will be posted in Friday’s Express News Update.

Last week’s survey response:

Do you agree? Parking meters should be eliminated from downtown Nelson

Comments:

I dont mind paying because it takes money to improve Nelson, But I want the meters to be at least TWO hours so you can at least shop and go to an appointment. I also find too many areas blocked off for parking. PS we need more bike parking in the downtown core. The scourge of Nelson. Nothing to do with orderly parking, they are just a way of fleecing the locals and visitors alike. So many people say “I can’t stop, I have to get back to my meter!”. During the strike/lockout a few years back parking was just fine with no enforcement. Tire-chalking and even a 3 hour limit would be OK. Constantly having anxiety because the dreaded meter man is going to ticket me because I’m five minutes late is NOT the way I want to be doing business downtown. It really doesn’t mesh with our whole Nelson vibe. I think chalking tires is a much

YES 67%

more discrete and relaxed way of monitoring the “hoarders”. Chalk marks worked in another community of similar size I used to live in. We should also have a public 2 hour parking lot with a few wheelchair spots. I suggest the old gas station property in the 300 block of Baker or the burned out lot in the 500 block of Victoria if either owner would be willing to sell to the city. Nelson needs to adopt a more community friendly approach to by-law enforcement. I can’t count the number of parking fines I have had for being over by 5 minutes or less. I’d love to see the meters go, but instead of chalking tires, the bylaw enforcement officers should get with the times and maybe use video or something. Chalk is easy to wipe off.

NO 34%

At the same time, Baker Street should become a car free / pedestrians and bicycles only zone. That will be a huge improvement for existing businesses, restaurants etc. and a great potential for new businesses within this pedestrian zone, street vendors etc... The loss of parking spots on Baker could be compensated by using the empty lot (former gas station) opposite of Sacred Ride and creating more parking spots down at the Railway Station, which is only a very short walk to the downtown core. I also think that it would be best to leave the first block (Best Western Hotel) and the last block of Baker Street (Nelson Chrysler) open for regular traffic. in a time where limited space is taken up by so many cars parking meters help keep some from driving. I would love to see a car-free Nelson and anything to help this along is a positive.....

theExpress Update

Last week’s survey comments continued: No parking meters on Baker Street only; give over more parking spots to businesses for their use of patios or green/relaxing zones; extend minimum parking time to 4 hours on Victoria and Vernon Street; clearly indicate on parking meters where the parking garage can be found (more permanent signage) when a visitor enters town; reduce parking meter fees. Parking is a huge issue in Nelson. Working downtown is a nightmare due to lack of parking. This City Council seems determined to make it worse by encouraging an even greater influx of people into Nelson with no real infrastructure to support it - including parking ! The revenue from meters does not seem to help this city. Roads are in poor shape & there has been no effort to create extra parking anywhere! How does a “chalk mark” stand up if challenged in court? If Nelson wishes to be a tourist destination, it needs to eliminate parking meters, just like other tourist towns. This will also encourage local shoppers to spend more time in shops, instead of having to worry about getting a parking ticket. The cost of taking the meters out could easily be blown out of proportion. City might consider long term leases to residents and businesses, that way avoid meter checks altogether. Difficult to answer confidently, without detailed disclosure of revenues vs. all associated costs. Eliminating meters would make finding a downtown parking spot nearly impossible, and the present meter rates seem excessive for such a small city. Perhaps bringing back the previous (cheaper) parking rate and cutting the bylaw enforcement cost in half (i.e. headcount reduction) might work... Having a 2 hour time limit by chalking is still a good idea though to make sure those who are in all day don’t take the spaces from shoppers etc. I would like to see the meters banned... but what about the ticket man? What will he do? Stops people from shopping in downtown Nelson.

Friday, Apr. 18, 2014

Survey

Local business owners and employees of various institutions and businesses still ‘hoard’ parking spots. I see their vehicles in paid meter space for full days. They, the business owners and employees, simply run out and plug the meter for the whole day. Chalking tires doesn’t solve anything as there are only so many enforcement officers. It does not eliminate the problem of hoarders as the by-law officers can only cover so much ground per day for both residential and downtown. I think the city is on the right track providing more bike parking to help solve some of the problem. I often leave my meter with money/time in it, but should I be late when spending money downtown I get a ticket. It deters me from going there. When I get a ticket I am only 5 min late! For me, parking meters actually add a stress factor to my shopping experience in downtown Nelson as quite often I find myself racing around trying to beat the meter man because I underestimated how long I’ll need. I also find that I spend less time “browsing” as $1/hour is more than I like to pay. Lived in Nelson for decades but now I’m in Esquimalt where there are no meters and life is good without them. Meters are a cash cow for Nelson, mooove on. Then shoppers will have more incentive to shop in Nelson as Castlegar has no meters or even cheaper meters in Trail. It would also encourage people to support businesses in Downtown Nelson rather than just going to “the free parking lot at the mall”. unfortunately it is a necessary evil. What should be eliminated is the loan shark like interest (fines > 500%) and bullying for late payments. It is a deterrent to coming shopping downtown!!!!! In a limited parking environment this just isn’t feasible. We have a lot of abusers in society that would, undoubtedly, park in one spot all day. Chalking tires and giving tickets for having parked too long in one spot without meters often ends in disputes. Without a meter, there is no exact indisputable measure of time available to settle them.

Page 14

These funds help to keep our Property Taxes down - remember it isn’t only City residence to pay for the meters! Too many long term parked cars could take up space for potential new shoppers. I think that removal would be an excuse to raise property taxes and that would affect rents in a town where rents are already exorbitant. Does anyone else remember when the city workers (including the by-law officers) were on strike a few years ago? Baker street was a different place! instead of people rushing on their errands, and back to their car before their meter ran out, they lingered, chatted, looked in other shops, talked to other passers-by,went for an unplanned lunch, and generally had an enjoyable downtown experience. I HATE the parking meters.I would love to be able to be spontaneous in my browsing and socializing without the threat of being penalized.. Maybe we could have yearly park passes available or for God’s sake do something radical like TRUSTING each other and letting go of micromanaging people down to monitoring their every 15 minutes. I realize this is a big money maker for the city, but with 4 or 6 full time union positions involved, it must cost a pretty penny as well. Where do we get to see those numbers? I think making the downtown an enjoyable, social, and cultural experience rather than a stressful one can only benefit us all. If we still need pay for bylaw enforcement officers to chalk tires to “discourage parking spot hoarders”, we might as well continue to generate tons of money for the City with parking meters. “lovely Rita meter maid may I inquire discretely when you free to take some tea with me” -Beatles Let’s reduce noise/air pollution and greenhouse gasses.Anything to reduce the number of vehicles in the downtown core would be welcome. Another way Nelson has been proven to be unfriendly to visitors! a necessary evil to make spots available to everyone
