A vision to please everyone

For fifteen years, Ken Waterton has lived opposite the Garden City Lands and “observed the natural beauty of the habitat.” He also keeps reading about the Lands in the newspapers. He determined that “the bottom line for the main players is money.”

Ken created the following design to satisfy everyone, beautify the land, and leave it largely intact for future uses, with the bonus of a continuing flow of revenue.” (Note: He assumed the Lands might lose their ALR protection.)

It’s great that Ken has put so much into a concept for everyone. How does the Canadian Conservation Garden stack up against the alternative futures of the “Richmond Citizens’ Vision” and “Sustainable Food Systems Park”?
