The LocalGovernmentMatters website features a series of questions in six broad subject areas that Metro Vancouver posed to the four main political parties in BC in November of last year, and more importantly, it also includes the parties’ responses to those questions to date. Metro Vancouver has developed a detailed implementation plan that will use the site to generate dialogue on the described issues. The message to the Mayors and Metro Vancouver Directors was to invite all Member Municipalities to join the discussion by hosting links to LocalGovernmentMatters on their websites, including PSAs we’ve created to build awareness
