1. Bike lanes
2. Olympic Village
There is some of the usual editorial nastiness, as even this edition of the Straight searches for ways to polarize its readers with hot-button negativity. This despite the Reader's Choices (see above).
From the Editorial Team's Choices:
"And if you disagree with any of the writers' choices in our Best of Vancouver issue, you can make your opinions known at www.straight.com/. After all, we're still living in a democracy, even if it doesn't seem like it to those who are outraged about bike lanes being rammed into their neighbourhoods without their consent."
