Plug ins for demography

If the City of Vancouver forces developers to install electric outlets in new building parking lots, sure it will make housing even more unaffordable, but it could put Vancouver ahead of the curve, the demographic curve, that is.

In Victoria, many parkades have plug-ins, and jammed around them are electric scooters -- the ones with front baskets and cane holders, not trendy vespas.

Also, as more and more scientists come to the conclusion we are heading into a renewed period of global cooling, we'll have a place to plug in our car's block heater.

Actions have consequences and many of those are unintended. Vancouver's happy planet mayor could be more far-sighted than most people think.
