Low footprint food choices are not the same as vegan food choices in all cases, the analysis is more complex than this. Generally a low footprint diet is local, seasonal food, and limits consumption of red meat, dairy, and some grains. Low footprint food choices is included in the draft Greenest City Action Plan and will be discussed in ongoing community engagement work.

@meatlover that's it? Do you maybe want to back up you comment with some facts? What does that even mean?
@Steven Forth I agree with your last little blurb. "Encourage vegan options for all" is so broad and vague. We need some more specific ideas like the meatless mondays idea ( i know! shameless advertising!)
or ensuring atleast one vegan lunch option in school cafeterias.
GUYS! check out the meatless Mondays idea!
people! the whole point to the ban is that you can obtain clean drinking water in Vancouver everywhere. you don't need to waste precious resources to produce something that you can get anywhere.
I think banning bottled water is a great idea. It's a completely unnecessary, wasteful luxury. People might actually have to resort to *gasp* using tap water. We're incredibly fortunate to have water everywhere. Just go to any public bathroom and fill up your reusable bottle. You do have a reusable bottle, don't you?
This idea is included in the Draft Greenest City Action Plan.
I agree with this idea. I was just stating that I don't think it will get the popularity vote because most people think something's a good idea if it doesn't effect them directly or if they don't have to pay for it.
I feel like this will be an idea that won't get a lot of votes because it would effect a lot of people. I'm all for it. You want to keep your money, then help reduce your waste. It's that simple.
Addressed in LEED requirements; not mandatory
BC Hydro and other energy utilities make rate proposals to the BC Utilities Commission who are the regulator for energy rates. For more info check out: www.bcuc.com
I totally agree. So often I see all the lights left on in stores and office buildings. There frequently are cleaning staff there at night, but they don't need every single light on to get the job done!
This idea is included in the draft Greenest City Action Plan. Action to date on this issue include community gardens and green streets on City-owned property. The City has also developed an edible landscaping policy http://vancouver.ca/commsvcs/socialplanning/initiatives/foodpolicy/tools/links.htm#Edible
The City supports Metro Vancouver’s plans to ban food scraps from the incinerator and landfills by 2015. The City will collaborate with Metro Vancouver to develop and implement a plan to ensure apartments, condos, businesses and institutions have access to food scraps collection programs before the ban comes into effect.
This is planned for Phase 2 of the food scraps recycling program.
