Evening Lectures – Ten Myths about Vancouver

Was there ever actual blood in Blood Alley? Vancouver is subject to many urban legends that have grown over time. There are also many aspects of Vancouver’s history that are taken for fact, but are they true? Did any of it happen or was it all made up? Join local Historian and Author, John Atkin at our last Evening Lecture of the spring to take a closer look at the origins of some of the well-worn myths in our city’s history. Find out what’s true, what’s false and what lies somewhere in between.
