program. The YES is run jointly by the BC Co-operative Association and
the Rainbow Youth Excellence Society (RYES), a charitable, non-partisan

modo. the car co-op
Now 15 years old,
Modo is the first English-speaking carsharing organization in the world.
One of Quebec Manor's members was a founding member of Modo, and several
other Quebec Manor residents are members. For many years a Modo car
was parked at our doorstep. Now the closest Modo cars are in the refined
surroundings of the new Mount Pleasant Community Centre garage, and
outside View Court, our neighbour co-op at Ontario and 10th.
