    Good to know - thanks! Glad to hear the City is already helping with this. My view would be to make it even easier for tenants. For example, I no longer own a car out of personal choice. Even though I could take the bus or borrow a car to transport a barrel to my home, this could still be perceived as somewhat inconvenient. I think the solution lies in making initiatives like this easy for people to adopt: arrange for property management companies to hold a number of barrels at each property for tenants who are interested, organize a delivery service, etc. The easier you can make it for residents to take advantage of services the City already offers, the quicker it will be for Vancouver to become green!

    This is an evolutionary process. The City of Vancouver is already considered a North American leader in this regard. Current and future plans and projects (e.g. Cambie Corridor Planning Program) will continue to embrace this ideal.

    This action is outside municipal jurisdiction, since schools are organized and governed under the Provincial Ministry of Education, with local school boards and associations. The action has merit from a Green Transportation perspective, but must be weighed against other issues faced by school boards around enrollment, understanding current and future neighbourhood demand, etc. Using schools for additional community programs after hours may be a way to get better value from existing resources. This item also relates to neighbourhood planning initiatives to provide more housing choice for families that will help support existing schools that are currently experiencing declining enrollments.

    The City supports the idea of road / congestion pricing, and bridge tolls are one possible implementation. A regional (as opposed to a downtown or city) approach might work best, given travel behaviour, patterns of movement, and jurisdictional issues. This lies outside City jurisdiction, so our role is limited to advocacy; changes to Provincial legislation are required.

    I absolutely agree with this idea! While naturally expected to be unpopular with suburban commuters, this is the best way to encourage greater use of our transit system and maybe even get people out of their cars and onto their bikes. As mentioned in a previous comment, London has already instituted a congestion fee with much success - the same could certainly be done here.
