    It's easy to get your own container and put it under the sink with your garbage, and use newpaper to wrap scarps in. Get one with a lid and you won't have an odour problem. This requires re-thinking how your habits are at home (IE NOT the way you grew up). Demanding a product to be "made" for the "purpose" is just another sign of the disease of selfishness consumerism--that's what got us into this mess in the first place.

    Outside City jurisdiction. TransLink is continually looking at ways to improve transit throughout the region, but additional funding is needed to make progress. A number of regional projects and plans are under way, including the Evergreen Line, and South of Fraser Rapid Transit Study.

    I guess you missed Gordo's plan to make Vancouver an elite city only the rich can afford? Keep young an vibrant citizens downtown? Yeah right. We wish, we wish.

    Not convinced that this would work without pollution being added to urban farming (setting up of greenhouses, inadequate crop rotation, pest control introducing invasive species). Not to mention the climate and realestate in Vancouver isn't exactly great for this kind of initiative.

    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.

    I guess Carol is getting all her Vegan friends to vote for this, because there is little logic to substantiate why this is a great way to meet the VANCOUVER Greenest City targets. A plus for dillusions of saving the world, though! Sorry but it is a myth than world hunger can be ended by a Vegan diet alone because of greed and desire for instant gratification.

    Climate change problems will still be here even if "vegan" farming practices are implemented. I personally think Vancouver has PLENTY of options for vegan food to buy....ie buying GROCERIES like lentils....if this person means more restaurant options I am confused as to why a) this would promote greener restaurant managament (ever worked in a restaurant Carol? Commercial recycling would have a much broader impact, without your dietary politik) b) persuade a non-vegetarian community to "try" new foods....especially ones that may not be seen as wholly nutritious. Vegan initiatives need to rely on education for balancing diets new ways, and more recipe exchanges. This does less for creating a green city right here, now, when there are higher-order problems, like the spewing of waste into the Straight. Sorry but diets are a personal, rather than public, secondary concern.

    There is a Campus City Collaborative project in the early stages of planning, where all of the post-secondary institutions are working with the City and the VEDC to talk about movement toward the greenest city, with a focus on creation of green jobs.
