Like I was saying...Once you look at BC in terms of it's topography and climatology (which are the same thing in many cases) maps you realize it doesn't have a lot of developable land in the areas that are most desirable. It's a series of valleys that all put together probably would be larger than PEI but not much.
This isn't even factoring in agricultural land protection and general environmental NIMBYism.
BC is going to have to go full tower mode if it wants to keep growing at a decent pace into the future.
Province might need to look a little closer at its Agricultural Land Reserve in Lower Mainland to open up opportunities for industrial development.Like I was saying...
