     OPINION     

Mayor Moore Passes on Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart Post on Rising Municipal Costs

Facebook

RICHARD STEWART·TUESDAY, JANUARY 17, 2017 But it’s the rhetoric that’s “Out-of-Control” “To our mind, the lesson is clear: looking ahead, local governments across the Lower Mainland should be following the province’s lead by showing a greater and more consistent commitment to fiscal discipline.”

 

Housing Choices Needed

Editorial: Housing choices needed in the Tri-Cities

The cost of land is skyrocketing, especially in neighbourhoods where rapid transit is close by, therefore the cities have to have a multi-pronged approach to ensure that families with moderate incomes aren’t priced out. That means looking at each neighbourhood and trying to figure out what would work best.
