Whereas, the RGS — the Regional Growth Strategy for Metro Vancouver — has had a seriously flawed process and has major problems. These problems include the lack of green zone protections of agricultural and conservation lands, the transfer of municipal land use authority to the region, and the role of TransLink.
Therefore, we urge all Mayors and Councillors to NOT accept the RGS.
Instead seek an extension of the acceptance process, and initiate a more detailed review , involving the public, to address all the critical problems with the RGS in each municipality.
