Pumped for Election Day? Today is your last week day before a (potentially) new government is announced, and Canada (potentially) gets a new Prime Minister. Calm some of those nerves at a few of these events.
What: What better way to spend your Friday than getting screamed at by eight-foot-tall space monsters? Gwar, legends of metal, are in town tonight. Don’t bank on them spraying you with a torrent of fake blood, but understand that it’s a possibility.
Where: Commodore Ballroom – 868 Granville Street, Vancouver
What: Our ocean’s are in danger. Humanity’s hunger for the fruits of the sea has pushed many species to the brink of extinction. Toast to the Coast celebrates sustainable practices, and the beauty and bounty of the Pacific coast, and tells you what you can do to help.
Where: Vancouver Aquarium – 845 Avison Way, Vancouver
What: A conference aimed at bringing together political and community representatives from across Canada to discuss our role in coexisting with our natural environment. Dry, but vitally important. Do your part.
Where: Holiday Inn Vancouver-Centre – 711 West Broadway, Vancouver
When: Friday, October 16; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
