People come to BC not just because of the pretty mountains. They come here because they expect a place where society is both different and better. Haven’t you noticed that when you say ‘Vancouver’ to people, their eyes light up? For foolish short-term reasons we’re killing that light, and all the money in the world can’t buy it back once it’s gone. We become a parking lot with mountains and it doesn’t have to happen.
