The response to this question, and others, may take 2 to 3 weeks.
(Vancouver, June 11, 2013) Today CityHallWatch sent the following letter to Honourable Christy Clark, Premier of British Columbia, and Honourable Coralee Oakes, Min. Community, Sport, Cultural Development, protesting the City of Vancouver’s lack of meaningful consultation on Regional Context Statement – Official Development Plan (Public Hearing June 11). Copies went to the heads of Metro Vancouver (GVRD) and to all mayors and councillors in the region. [Update as of 18-June-2013. The Premier has NOT acknowledged receipt of the letter. Reminders will be sent. See separate report of outcomes of the meeting on CityHallWatch. The Vision/NPA “developer axis” ignored public opposition and voted to adopt the RCS-ODP. Only Greens listened to public and voted against.]
