    I want to know the name of the creek that is on the map that flows under the intersection of Granville St & 16th Avenue (or Marpole Avenue)

    Perhaps try contacting http://www.falsecreekwatershed.org/ or http://mtpleasantwatershed.wordpress.com/ for an answer.
    We do not know the name you are seeking but would be interested to know if you find out.

An innovative strategy to complete every one of these tasks is a laptop. These desktops are mobile, small, strong and convenient.
