Following is a letter written (July 9th) to both North Van Councils by a North Shore resident, Hazen Colbert; reprinted with permission. Following his letter is a response to him from CNV Councillor Pam Bookham and his reply to her.

Your Worship & Council of Both DNV and CNV,
In 2011, the DNV created an OCP. Since then, implementation has focussed
solely on densification ignoring the remainder of the OCP. The City now has
a draft OCP which supports continued rapid densification. Densification is
solely focussed on large condominium projects. Densification was to be a
tool for affordability, to create younger family housing options, and to
encourage public transit use. Over the past year, the District (and the CNV)
have added an unprecedented number of new condo projects.
