What about Esquimalt? There could be some serious density changes there and it wouldnt have an effect on congestion


I think highlands and everything up to Brentwood bay should be developer. Not farmland. In terms of infill I think a few of the golf courses could go

It looks like a new road is going in between Sooke Road at Westshore Parkway and Luxton Road in the Happy Valley.

Also the woods across from Slegg Lumber along Sooke Road have now been cut down between Westshore Parkway and Glenshire Drive.

I'm still not convinced it will ever really take off.

Interesting use of the word "condominion". Why did they elect to use it in the title but not in the article itself?

 

In other news, I cracked open one of my trustiest old dictionaries just now and I'm sad to say it's smelling very musty, indeed.

If that's supposed to mean 'working' girls, that's a LOT of those girls in Winnipeg!

It's not the volume of people, it's how much land each new person occupied.

 

In our case the difference over 32-years is negligible. But if we shared Edmonton's development patterns we'd see a considerable different between Victoria of 1984 and Victoria of 2016.

Ehh, I wouldn't want to emulate Edmonton's painful sprawl (lived there for too long, commutes were a b*tch even with wide freeways). They are just coming to grips with vertical densification, which Victoria (being as it is more geographically confined) needs to hop on top of ASAP.  Build up; incorporate safe parks and greens spaces in a controlled, planned manner; and ensure vehicular transit corridors are separated from pedestrian/bike/scooter paths. This is my take on healthy and sustainable population growth.
