My name is Jillian Glover and I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Canada - a shiny modern city known for its awesome scenery and stellar urban planning. I work in government communications, am a former Vancouver City Planning Commissioner and my educational background is in Communications and Urban Studies, which means I am very interested in how people in urban environments engage in their cities. This can be as simple as attending public events; enjoying public amenities, restaurants, local artists, musicians; or getting informed and participating in how the built environment is used and designed.
This City Life is a place where I can share my thoughts and ideas on all of these topics. I am not here to tell you to shop at certain places or eat at certain restaurants – just to get out and participate in making your city awesome. Because a city is only as awesome as the people who live there.
Feel free to email me with any questions you have or suggested topics for the blog!
