    This is acknowledged as a key strategy to better integrate cycling and transit. In 07/2009 the City committed some funding for secure parking facilities at Broadway-City Hall and Olympic Village Canada Line stations. The City has also conducted a feasibility study for a downtown bike centre.

    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.

    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 for one am disgusted by the anti-vegan sentiments of so-called environmentalists who either ignore or are oblivious to the facts of how the animal agriculture industries directly impact the environment, locally and globally. If you want a greener city, but think veganism is a baseless dietary choice by people who "love animals", you are sorely mistaken and have a lot of reading to do.

    I would suggest starting with the 3 most recent UN Climate Reports (2010, 2009, 2006), the most recent of which states that without a worldwide shift away from eating animal products, efforts to fight climate change are futile. That is a very bold statement for a group of scientists (without an animal rights "agenda") to make. While there has been scrutiny of the latest report, the complaints have been about the accuracy of its statistics, NOT its conclusions.

    "More vegan options" does not go far enough by any means. There needs to be a serious educational initiative so that more people give some serious thought about the consequences of their eating habits. A vegan diet alone will not cure our problems, but it's one of the best places to start.
