It’s 8 p.m. on Sunday, do you know where your mayor is?
HBO’s Game of Thrones, the hit medieval fantasy series, is the ultimate in appointment television. The spring 2016 season was must-see-TV for Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, who included it in his daily agenda.
Not a surprise, since Vancouver is fast-becoming a city of royals and nobles (read: resort city/playground for the rich).
On Dec. 8, Robertson marked his eighth year occupying the leather throne at 12th and Cambie. Less than two years remain in his mandate. Will he serve it out or set out to conquer the federal scene, by appointment or election?
P.S. Wondering about those entries in his calendar referring to The Haulers? That’s the Van City Haulers, the Urban Rec soccer team on which Robertson plays.
