Canadians may get a few heckles here and there, but they mean business when it comes to their skateboarding. Vancouver is constantly on the map for having some of the best parks around, all while keeping their city looking fresh and clean.  Skaters of all shapes and sizes can appreciate the ebb and flow of Hastings Skatepark.  Its concrete canvas is ready and waiting for pros and novices alike.  Port Coquitlam Skatepark recently hosted the Vancouver Qualifier for the Etnies AM Getting Paid Contest on August 14th.   There are so many rideable spots in Vancouver, both in parks and on the street.  Besides all of this goodness, the city is also taking strides in reducing their carbon footprint.  They recently decided to aim for the production of carbon neutral building by 2020.  Vancouver is currently the leader in North America for the lowest amount of carbon emissions per capita for major cities.  Not only is the city making a point to provide amazing skate parks, but they’ve figured out a way for everyone to breathe a little easier.  Rori Ladhoff
