Ted Field gives his colourful take on the blue sky thinking behind GCAT - see video
CityCaucus.com wondered why our own "green shift" has been the stuff of secret meetings. Heck, even an American consultant was wooed up to Vancouver to see how great the findings of Mayor Robertson's YATF committee on green stuff. But where were you and I, the citizens of Vancouver who actually might have to do all the work to make Vancouver meet Gregor's goal of being G-R-E-E-N?
GlobalTV's Ted Field wondered that too, so he asked the Mayor, CityCaucus.com, Coun. Suzanne Anton, and a sampling of citizens how are we going to get greener? There are a lot of good ideas out there, apparently, not just those being thrown around a board room table behind closed doors at City Hall.
After seeing this piece we wonder what committee members will think of the Mayor dismissing ideas out of hand as mere "brainstorming" and not practical for Vancouver. Surely we should all hear these ideas, debate them publicly, before kiboshing them?
