The Importance of Industrial Space

A story about the Vancouver metroplex's struggle to balance its citizen's need for more residential spaces with its politician's desire to preserve some land for industrial uses and create new jobs:

We have reaffirmed the city’s commitment to protect industrial land and to look at increasing job density on that land base in the years ahead,” said Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, who believes developers and land speculators are holding on to industrial land in the hopes of getting it rezoned to residential under friendlier administrations. “Industrial lands are crucial for our economy and job creation. There is a need to maintain that land base and to prevent speculation that will result in turning that land into residential.”
