Vancouverites don’t like to toot their horns too much so we’ll let The Mark do it for us!

In a recent post , titled ‘The World’s 10 Greenest Citites’, they listed Vancouver as one of the Top 10 Greenest Cities and explained how cities are becoming increasingly important fronts in the fight against climate change.

Here’s what they have to say about our wonderful city –  “An urban area carved from an awe-inspiring landscape, it’s no wonder Vancouver is dedicated to protecting the environment.  As part of the city’s 100-year plan for environmentally friendly living, Vancouver has adopted solar-powered trash compactors, developed an innovative public transportation system and reduced its reliance on non-renewable energy to 10 per cent.  The city also contains more than 200 parks.
