Gallery: National Dialogue on Land Use, Public Hearings & Democracy
On January 26, 2024, we gathered at the Wosk Centre for a panel-style dialogue event to elevate the conversation around land use decisions and public hearings to a national level. Our expert panel was moderated by Vancouver City Councillor Christine Boyle, and comprised of New Westminster City Councillor Nadine Nakagawa, Markham Director of Planning and Urban Design Giulio Cescato, Tsleil-Wautuh Nation Elected Councillor Dennis Thomas Whonoak, Calgary City Councillor Courtney Walcott and Institut du Nouveau Monde Directrice Générale Malorie Flon, who joined us online from Quebec. The conversation was insightful, enlightening, passionate and even humorous, and we are deeply grateful to Cllr. Boyle, our panelists, and everyone who joined us in person and online for sharing this special night with us.
