Not the kind of news we like to report on here at kitsilano.ca:
Vancouver Police say an elderly man died today after being struck by a garbage truck working near his home in Kitsilano.
VPD say it happened just after the noon hour as the man was walking in a narrow back lane on the south side of West Broadway near Bayswater.

first lane south of broadway at Carnarvon on the east side of Carnarvon.
Ugly little in-out lane that the garbage trucks fight to enter or exit. They can only back in or worse back out on to Carnarvon.
I was on the scene shortly afterward and it was just so sad. Has the name of the person been published since? I wouldn’t mind sending a note to his family.
i deliver in that alley on sundays and he was one of the nicest guys you can meet. my prayers go out to his family.
