I hope everyone around here remember to set their clocks back so they’re not unnecessarily early to any events this morning. Here’s a quick news roundup.

  • CKNW has been spreading rumors about the Surrey murder and taking shots at the justice system. Naturally, the RCMP isn’t pleased. CKNW…. they’re so badass…
  • News1130 teases us with a headline about an online poll surrounding the Millennium Line but offers no links in its post. They have the same story up at CKNW, they include a URL but I’m not sure now if it’s the right one: www.mayorsamsullivan.ca
  • I haven’t blogged about this yet because a) it’s all over the news and b) it confuses me.

    Ticket prices have been announced for the Vancouver 2010 games. It appears as though they start at around $25 and go up to $1,100 for the opening ceremonies. There’s some deal about a “lottery” system in place, and “there will be 50,000 free tickets and half the tickets will be $100 or less… About 100,000 tickets will be available for $25 or less. [CTV]”

    …approximately 1.6 million tickets will be available for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games with 100,000 tickets priced at $25. Half of all tickets are priced at $100 or less and opening and closing ceremonies tickets, ranging from $175 to $1,100. [Canada.com]

    There’s the issue of ticket brokers claiming they have tickets – where will you be able to get tickets and when. Don’t believe everything you hear and don’t pounce on anything posted on Craigslist right now. They officially go on sale in October 2008 so don’t think you’ve got a deal or are beating the box office. It ain’t happening.

  • That’s it for this morning, I’m off to the suburbs and am hoping to get my passport signed so I can get that dropped off this week. Since I used my married name I can’t do a “super easy fast track renewal” so it’s a bit of a pain. Will post more about this when I’m waiting in line for 4 hours.

      im pretty sure an expansion of the Millennium Line out to UBC would have students jumping up and down yelling “they finally listened!”

      I’d kill for a mere 4-hour wait.

      Getting a new passport from the other side of the globe is … a little more involved.

      I don’t get that chart at all. Seems like it’s missing information about an axis or something.
