Well the snow is melting just as fast as it took over Metro Vancouver. And we don’t know about you, but we are super stoked for patio season here in North Vancouver as the Lonsdale Avenue corridor is just bursting with awesome eateries, pubs and mom and pop spots to enjoy. We want to take this time to say thank you to the City of North Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver for doing a great job keeping on top of the snow removal, shovelling and salting of the walkways around the community. No one could have anticipated this much snow fall, so with that considered everything was handled extremely well. Hats off to the City and District workers!
