Regional growth plan ignores economy, lacks coherence: Vancouver Sun (14-May-2011)

Regional growth plan ignores economy, lacks coherence. A goal without a plan is just a wish. By American talk show host and columnist Larry Elder. Excerpt:  Metro Vancouver, our unelected regional governing body, has identified ambitious goals in its Regional Growth Strategy to 2040… However, its strategies for achieving them are as ephemeral as a rainbow and oblivious to the realities of living in the Lower Mainland….In sum, the Regional Growth Strategy is a flawed document that most egregiously ignores the economic foundation upon which all of its other initiatives depend and fails to take into consideration the way people who live in the region work, travel, shop and entertain themselves…Before this plan is cast in stone, it needs to be reconsidered and revised to reflect something more substantial, real and coherent than the dreams of planners. Until then, it is merely wishful thinking and should be withdrawn. Full article here.
