    TransLink is currently leading a study to determine the best approach to deliver high-capacity, fast, frequent, and reliable rapid transit for the Broadway Corridor from Commercial Drive to UBC. A number of technologies and alignment options are being considered, including rail rapid transit (e.g. SkyTrain), surface light rail transit, and bus rapid transit.

    The City of Vancouver is directly involved as a partner agency in the study. In April 2010, City Council endorsed ten principles to guide City input into this process (http://vancouver/ubcline/principles).

    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 are included in the draft Greenest City Action Plan and will be discussed through community engagement activities.

    This sounds completely unrealistic for municipal government to take on. Although it may have some merit in the grand global scheme of things, city hall would be wasting taxpayer money, staff time and energy on trying to somehow influence the diets of an entire city population. I'd rather see city government tackle some more realistic goals like expanding food waste collection and metering home water use.

    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 something that's very do-able for municipalities and many in the Lower Mainland do offer rebates such as $50 back for buying a low flow toilet. The City of Vancouver, however, does not, despite it's goal of being the greenest city in the world. North Vcr, Coquitlam, PoCo, District of North Van, West Vancouver all offer a rebate incentive. Get with the program City of Vancouver.
