Five minute summary of what’s wrong with the RGS

During the debate on the Regional Growth Strategy at the City of Vancouver, Councillor David Cadman eloquently summarized the key shortcomings of the RGS in five minutes and compared it to the LRSP (Livable Region Strategic Plan). Councillor Cadman’s closing remarks can be viewed in the video segment below:

City of Vancouver Council went on and ratified the RGS anyway on March 3rd, 2011, with Councillors Cadman and Anton opposed. The RGS passed by a 5-2 vote, with Mayor Robertson and Councillors Chow, Jang, Meggs and Reimer in support.

Next up will be Regional Context Statement for the City of Vancouver and for other municipalities; this is required by Metro Vancouver within two years to indicate how a municipality’s Official Community Plan (OCP) conforms to the RGS.
