Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson delivered the keynote speech at a recent lunch event held by the Urban Land Institute of B.C. on May 6 at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in downtown Vancouver.

Mayor Robertson spoke to the Journal of Commerce after the event and covered topics such as development in the city and building around and in existing neighborhoods.

The mayor also discussed the importance of development of the Broadway corridor running from Commercial Drive to the University of British Columbia, and addressed the challenges of implementing a Skytrain extending the Millennium Line.

Robertson said that much was learned while building the Canada Line in preparation for the 2010 Winter Olympics, and that both positive lessons and awareness and avoidance of mistakes that were made with the Canada Line would inform construction of the new line.
