Monies for Vancouver signals dismal government funding

Vancouver is one of 100 global cities to receive over $1 million in funds and support from a non-profit organization in the 100 Resilient Cities network.

In a Metro News story, UBC urban planning director Penny Gurstein says this is evidence that upper levels of government are not doing enough to back cities.

“There just isn’t the kind of funding [available] to address the kind of issues that cities have to face,” Gurstein said. “Ideally, it would be good if this was coming from government. But it’s not.”
