Mike and Daniel are in today's Vancouver Sun Op-Ed page discussing Gregor's green plan
CityCaucus.com are once again privileged to be on the Editorial pages of the Vancouver Sun. The piece titled, Mayor Robertson's green dream is just that is a critical look at the 70+ page plan by Gregor and his GCAT team to achieve green greatness.
For Vancouver city council, green has become the new black. Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson's 10-point plan for becoming the world's greenest city was rolled out recently.
The mayor's handpicked team of advisers has held their meetings out of public view. Now what should Vancouver residents make of the plan developed by the mayor's team without their input?
We are weighing into the debate by asking are the Mayor's goals, such as achieving 20,000 green-oriented jobs within a decade in city limits, actually achievable? Where are the hard decisions around land use? Why the rush toward social enterprises and making changes to the Vancouver Charter?
We've got much more to say about Gregor's Green Dream, so stay tuned for upcoming posts.
On other media appearances, CityCaucus.com's Daniel Fontaine made his weekly appearance on CKNW's Civic Affairs Panel on the Bill Good Show this morning. Topics included whether there is a future in large single-family homes, and should cities limit the size of houses or find better ways to tax the square footage?
You can check out the discussion by visiting CKNW's Audio Vault, and going to 9am on Tuesday, October 27th.
