    If the Earth is going to get warmer, then trees will be needed to give shade, hold moisture, attract rain (water only goes where it can be cleansed and purified). Vancouver does not have enough forests in urban settings - Stanley Park, Endowment lands, To say we have enough trees is ignorant! The work that trees do creating air... - go over to West Vancouver and feel the better quality air than in the city - more trees are needed in the city so that decent air is breathed - so that people think better - so that cool air is available on a 40+ degree day. So that our city looks like a park, not a parking lot. One lane for public transit... One lane for bikes and the rest for trees. Note - there are no lanes for cars. Take away the Roman grid for cars and make the city people friendly.

    Start by eliminating plastic in as many ways as possible.

    Ban dishwashers, dryers, private swimming pools, sprinkler systems, car washes, cars and other lifestyle toys that have no value in a sustainable environment. A city and its inhabitants that continue to behave contrary to the needs of nature to keep us alive is not sustainable and need reworking completely to remain on the Earth! A cell that is growing out of control and contrary to the needs of the host is considered a virus or cancerous growth that is not wanted or encouraged by the 'host'.

    Why not make it mandatory that the space heater is solar powered?

    The corner grocery/local food garden is a must to reduce unneccessary traffic. Make more villages that can be walked to in each neighbourhood, that have food stores, bakeries, farmers markets, etc.

    There will always be wood and there will not always be gas. Far better we get rid of cars and industry than we worry about staying warm when the gas lines are broken.

    Trees are far more valuable to humanity than science is aware of. Why do have to cut any trees? I would prefer that we remove housing, fencing, lanes and sidewalks and turn the city into a forest with housing rather than a city with trees.

    I would like to see a lot in every neighbourhood that is for food and beauty gardening. This could be the laneway in some circumstances. But just making it look good and not growing food in a green space is a waste of earth.

    The Draft Greenest City Action Plan includes an action to develop a building deconstruction policy. The City is piloting a building deconstruction project and is exploring options for an incentive program to encourage deconstruction.
