Depending who you listen to the Broadway Plan, which comes to council on Wednesday is either the greatest thing ever or the ultimate destruction of the Vancouver we know and love. Plus policing, NIMBYs also hate pools, election speculation via polls and candidate announcements, and shenanigans in Surrey, Langley and Lytton.

  1. I just listened to your lego blocks podcast, and I disagree with almost everything you said, but I must object to one thing you said particularly. Lori Culbert’s story was informative, but you CANNOT add up all the municipal housing needs totals to reach a grand total of 250,000 new units. They are Christmas wish lists from the municipalities.

    These municipalities compete with each other for both newcomers, and for provincial and federal funding. They will not all get what they want. That would be excessive, overkill, and irrational. Plus, many newcomers, if not almost all, will take up existing housing, not new housing. People die. People move away. People move into extended care.

  2. Re.: lego blocks podcast, you are pandering to a bunch of yahoos who never read Brian Palmquist’s report, which emphasized that the illustration shown was a digital rendering of a massing model. Stephen Quinn did not read it either, apparently.
