Trevor Boddy warns against downtown Vancouver's steady conversion to luxury housing:
With our forestry industry in decline, and our real estate boom losing its steam, B.C.'s economic health will increasingly depend on its creative and cultural industries. Up to now, Vancouver, Victoria and the Okanagan have been doing an amazing job in attracting the best and brightest from across Canada and around the world, new residents who bring their energy, ideas and risk-taking to invent things that never existed before: plays, software, fuel cells, urban developments, sculptures, process engineering, jazz solos, corporate logos, furniture, novels, cartoons, architecture, clothing designs, video games, and on and on.
