The West Shore communities are grappling with the costs and benefits of development and growth. Just as Langford and Colwood are courting big development dollars, the districts of Highlands and Metchosin are fighting to maintain their rural character under mounting pressure to allow new construction. The Discourse will not only highlight the major growth on the West Shore, but break down and reveal the nuances, challenges and issues that come along with it. This Solutions Project will begin with community consultations, to see what matters the most to West Shore residents when it comes to development. This series will tell real stories about real people behind this issue, leading to evidence-based change within the community. Coming April 2021.
