Local governments on Vancouver Island are demonstrating what can be accomplished through partnerships and collaboration. On February 23, 2010 in Victoria, the Bowker Creek Forum enabled participants to share lessons learned and connect the dots between five Georgia Basin initiatives.
“Once we know what we want our watersheds and neighbourhoods to look like, the next step is to decide what the tools are that will get us there. Metro Vancouver municipalities can learn from the Bowker Creek experience,” states Rémi Dubé, Acting Development Services Manager with the City of Surrey.
