Richmond Tourism's innovative promotion - 365 days

On a visit to Vancouver in March 2012, i perchance read about advert/article calling for applications to become their Ambassador for diverse eating, with salary and daily stipend to eat out for 365 days, and Blog the experience.
The Foodie Ambassador is Lindsay Anderson. The blog has more info than i can condense, thus click and read.
The Tourism Richmond Association, notes that the city of 200,000 population, 65 % Asian (45% of Chinese descent), a stones throw from International airport - YVR, linked with Vancouver downtown and Burnaby by the Skytrain's , &BCanada Line

Triple"O" & Shake from White Spot or Chinese or Su

Once upon a time in the 60's we drove out to Richmond to see the farmlands. buy farm fresh produce, get a few fish from the boats being unloaded and grabbed a Triple “O” burger, shakes and fresh cut fries White Spot as has been done by so many other since the first Drive-in at Granville Street at 67th Ave in Vancouver. till today and into the future.
Nowadays, within 8 miles (20 kms) of the YVR- Vancouver Intl Airport
you have more restaurants that you can eat two meals daily for a year,
all of them at a better the above average rating of every cuisine available in the world, but they somehow have their table occupied day and night and food is fresh, sometime service is slow or surly, but it's the food that matters.
