    * I'm willing to debate whether it's truly the worst invention of all time.

    I wish I had some votes left to support this one. We can't be green while destroying bears in our own backyard. We need penalties for people who refuse to be bear-aware. I also find it hard to believe we cannot find a place for the bears that have lost their fear of humans. A city-funded refuge maybe? That has to be preferable to shooting them.

    I recently read about villagers in India who were trying to prevent human-tiger conflicts by surrendering some of their own livestock to old or hungry tigers that might otherwise become man-eaters. Regardless of whether that is actually a good idea, it's inspiring to see that people with so few resources are still willing to make sacrifices in order to preserve the neighbouring wild life.

    Can't argue with David Suzuki.

    He also says we should drive less. That is a practical step our city can and should take. We can’t very well tell other countries how to behave while our millions of cars are pumping large amounts of CO2 into the air. I’ll move my votes accordingly.

    @DriveMore I think we are a long way from worrying about there not being enough CO2 in the atmosphere. Scrubbers act as an artifical rainforest, as the article says.

    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.

    The City is supportive of this idea, but implementation requires action outside municipal jurisdiction. The City has and will continue to advocate to the Province and ICBC for PAYD and/or other distance-based forms of auto insurance.

    Get's my vote! Sears is an eyesore and that would be a fantastic place for a plaza.

    The draft Greenest City plan will include directions to explore pedestrian-only and pedestrian-priority streets in the downtown core. Potential locations will be identified at a later date (e.g. as part of the transportation plan update).

    Water Street, too, please! And while we are at it, let's reclaim some of the the Waterfront area from the car parks - put them underground or, better yet, get rid of them.

    It's not true that incineration precludes green-ness. Yes, it is certainly the last green resort (Reduce > Reuse > Recycle > Recover), but it's better than landfill and provides a way to recover some of the energy spent in manufacture and recycling.
