Kitsilano, for instance, is described as a walker's paradise with a Walk Score of Surrey Cloverdale gets a rating of 70 and is considered "very walkable". Port Coquitlam, on the other hand, only gets a Walk Score of 47, earning the descriptor "car-dependent".

And it's transforming the real-estate industry. Walking is also good for people's health. As the province tries to curb health-care costs, let's hope that the new minister of transportation and infrastructure recognizes how he can enhance public health.

He's involved in a major project looking at the relationship between changing travel patterns, physical activity, nutrition, and cardiovascular-disease factors. Stone and the new health minister, Terry Lake, would be wise to read his research. And the new minister would benefit from visiting SFU to hear what former Vancouver councillor Gordon Price has to say. If Stone does all of this and pays attention to transportation trends, he has an opportunity to become an outstanding minister of transportation and infrastructure.
We haven't had one of those in a very long time. Walk Score's Link with health outcomes is dubious, based on the research. Walk Score is useful for those people who do not own a vehicle or who desire to walk to amenities even if in some cases they need to carry a can of mace or even a 9mm ".

Its doubtful it'll be safe to run by , walking, lol only with a squad of airborne at your back. I have to wonder if statscan cooked the crime stats bringing down the crime rate to make it appear the streets are safe. Run don't walk. This is a message to Minister Todd Stone, I hope that you will look into the ferry fiasco, what I mean by that is there seems to be a clear lack of common sense with the cost increasing and schedule's declining. The most responsible thing to do, would be to take a close look at the consumption rates in fuel that the ferries use, the biggest problem is they are run by 2 cycle diesel engines.
Would it not be smart to replace these inefficient and outdated engines, with new fuel efficient ones? It makes no sense to keep using them at the cost to the environment, fuel being consumed. The new engines would cost less in the long run, plus being good for the environment and especially the fuel costs, since they are continually going up in price.
