Many native British Columbia alpine plants such as Mountain Sorrell (Oxyria digyna) connect our flora to the tundra and high mountains of Asia. In the lowlands there are fewer species in common between these two continents. Among these is one of the most remarkable plants in our province, the skunk cabbage (Lysichiton americanus), known also as Yellow Arum and by the more evocative names of Swamp Lantern and Skeena Lily. This robust perennial forms modest to luxurious clumps of leaves reminiscent of the tropics. It is best known for the large yellow blooms that light up damp forest corners in the spring time.

Same street performer who did the really amasing fire-eating stunt. It was an eclectic collection of activities, on one side of the street the Falun Dafa followers were doing their thing, this very good and funny busker performed in the middle of the street, and half a block of pot sellers on the other side of the street were actively selling their wares. Only in Vancouver?

Dousing the flames.

Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) is an ancient way for improving mind and body. The practice’s most visible aspects are its five gentle exercises, including meditation. They are highly effective ways to improve health and energy. Falun Gong practitioners also study spiritual teachings, taking them as a guide for daily life.

The persecution of Falun Gong followers began in 1999 by the Chinese Communist Party who wanted to eliminate the spiritual practice. It is characterized by a multifaceted propaganda campaign, a program of enforced ideological conversion and re-education, and a variety of extralegal coercive measures such as arbitrary arrests, forced labor, and physical torture, sometimes resulting in death. (Wikipedia)

And right across the street there was a string of tables selling pot and everything to do with pot (nothing to do with Falun Gong)..
