Solving Vancouver's growing pains

What a breath of fresh air. Gordon Gibson's piece is timely and important. And yet no one up until now has seemed to want to address it. Growth is great for developers and city hall with the growing tax base and revenue from developers' cost charges.

It's no surprise given the contribution figures from the last civic election and the list of developers supporting Vision.

Everything is hidden behind the guise of densification with-out looking at loss of identity of our neighbourhoods.

It's great if you can afford to own real estate, but unfortunate if you can't, and have to leave your own city.

As I have asked many longtime residents, do you enjoy the way the city is today or the way it was a few years ago? It is unanimous that our quality of living has dropped in recent years.

Growth has its costs. Thanks for speaking up and starting the debate!

Brian Abs, North Vancouver
