How is North Vancouver doing under new Federal Government?

Although it's still early days, so far there are no specific or concrete funding proposals for North Vancouver. Based on the Trudeau government's election platform, it would seem we can assume there will be Federal money spent in North Vancouver on infrastructure (transportation and housing). Announcements will likely take place within the next few months, at the latest.

Non market housing discussed on District council

Agenda item 9.6 of the Feb.1st regular District Council meeting saw robust discussion on the topic of  District land that could potentially be used for non market housing. Council unanimously accepted this motion that originated from Councillor Hanson. During the last Municipal election in 2014 this was an issue that kept coming up at All Candidates Meetings and seemed to have support from the voting public. The purpose of bringing this motion forward was to determine if Council would at first support the idea in principle.
