Looking for an interesting read this summer?
Manager of Metropolitan Planning, Regional Parks & Environment at Metro Vancouver, Gaetan Royer, is author of Time for Cities.
Royer’s well-researched book calls for the critical resources and powers needed by Canadian towns and cities in the form of a Clarity Act. The Clarity Act would give cities what Royer believes is long overdue recognition as a level of government.
Not sure this book is right for your next beach day?
Fear not, Royer’s voice can be heard with every page due to his unique writing style. The thorough research that evidently went into his book encourages readers to take it seriously and offer strong support for Royer’s argument. His breezy, to the point and conversational tone simultaneously engages readers. By the end, whether you agree or disagree, you will feel as though you have engaged in a higher level of discussion and emerge with a greater appreciation for what Royer believes is a “blueprint for Canada to build a just society”.
