What's in a name?

We talked about the origins of street names today (the town of Oliver is re-naming its grid system). Hamilton St, where CBC is situated, is named after CPR surveyor Lauchlan Hamilton who actually named the street after himself (chef's privilege). The Silk Road walking route to historic Chinatown starts right across the street at Library Square.

To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
