Metro Vancouver is projecting 1 million new residents by 2050 (an average of 35,000 newcomers every year!), so what does this mean for emerging urban centres, job creation, housing affordability, transportation, and the environment. This week, Sean Galloway, Director of Regional Planning and Electoral Area Services for Metro Vancouver, joins Matt & Adam fresh off the publication of the “Metro 2050” Draft Report to talk major infrastructure and major changes coming to the region. Which sub-areas are set for growth? Which industries will lead the way? And why should you double down on the Lower Mainland? This and more on this week’s Metro Vancouver deep-dive!
