Chinatown Development Policy Changes – progress update from staff to community “CHINATOWN IS SPECIAL TO ME” The City wants to see the kind of development that makes Chinatown so special and unique to many of us.
At the heart of the celebrations stands Chinatown, centred on Gerrard Street, between Shaftesbury Avenue and Lisle Street in the West End.
MEDIA RELEASE: IMMEDIATE Ottawa, May 22, 2017 The Daniel Coates, MS, PhD, FWAAS, Initiated and managed the first national urban study in Canada as Top Advisor (1968‐1973) to the late Hon. Robert Andras, Minister for Housing, Minister of State for Urban Affairs (1969‐1971) and other senior Portfolios, in the Government of the Right Hon. Pierre E. Trudeau. Coates also served as Former Deputy Minister level top senior policy advisor to Prime Minister John N. Turner, also served Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Prime Minister Campbell’s senior Minister, the Hon. Bernard Valcourt, and managed the Hon. Jim Flaherty’s Payments Task Force stakeholder engagement process, 2010‐2011 with his colleagues who led the engagement process (see: Pat Meredith, et al, CATALYTIC GOVERNANCE, ... U of Toronto Press, 2016). COPY OF LETTER TO THE MAYOR AND COUNCIL, CITY OF VANCOUVER Dear Mayor Robertson and Members of Council, City of Vancouver, Chinatown, a City of Vancouver treasure, in fact a national treasure of major importance for all Canadians, is today again under grave threat, as it was in 1969 when Bob Andras and I stopped the devastation that was planned with the imminent local launch of the urban renewal program in Strathcona. In this plea to you and your colleagues on Council, I today speak without hesitation for the late Bob Andras, late of the City of Vancouver, and for myself. (Over five and a half years, as both our fonds at Library & Archives Canada confirms, Bob and I acted as one voice, he was a true leader and I his devoted key advisor.) For it was Bob Andras and I who heard from hundreds of residents in Vancouver in 1969 their cry to protect and preserve North America’s most precious Chinatown in Vancouver, to stop in its tracks the planned urban renewal program which would demolish homes throughout the community and allow the City and Province to build a freeway through Chinatown and the demolished community. When as Minister, Bob, and I toured Vancouver by car and helicopter on the first visit as Minister to the City in 1969, with the then President of CMHC and the federal housing’s Regional Director, I recall too well Herb Hignett, CMHC President’s comments to us that day in making the case for urban renewal in Strathcona. He stated his view why the bulldozers were essential and the planned highway through the demolished area an urgent priority. Herb had not heard the voice of SPOTA, its leadership and the voice of so many in the community pleading for their community and its protection. Herb noted that many of the homes were shoddy, falling apart, and without any basements, sitting on earth, not deserving of improvements or preservation. This was the mind set of CMHC at the time. Until Bob Andras, changed the culture of the Corporation, with the appointment of a socially progressive actor, Walter Rudnicki, as Vice President of Policy at CMHC. Over the next few days in 1969 on that first visit we heard other voices and a very different message. The names I most remember are those of Shirley Chan, the most authentic and powerful voice we heard, that of her mother, Mary, other leaders of SPOTA, and most especially our meetings with a young architect Joe Wai, whose passion for the community and its unique character and his eloquence, was far more persuasive to us than CMHC officials. I am saddened that Joe Wai passed away recently and cannot continue his fight for Chinatown and stop high rise development, which is totally out of character with the homes and traditional shops in the community. Thankfully, in the early years, the Hon. Paul Hellyer with his top advisor Lloyd Axworthy, had temporarily frozen the urban renewal program in the course of their Task Force study. After Hellyer resigned from Pierre Trudeau’s Cabinet in 1969 in a dispute with the Prime Minister, as did Lloyd; successor Bob Andras, and I, his sole non CMHC advisor, decided that the urban renewal program in Vancouver was not to be approved. Ultimately, with Cabinet’s support, most of the program across the country was permanently stopped. The threat today is from another high rise development in a most sensitive and precious part of the community. For this community, it is a totally inappropriate development. I join with many others, including the late Joe Wai, Dr. Shirley Chan, MP Jenny Kwan and other voices, in the same spirit that guided Bob Andras’ decision in 1969 to reject pressure from CMHC, Province and City, in opposing the rezoning proposal for the tower at 105 Keefer Street. In every respect, Shirley Chan’s comments on the issue and those of Member of Parliament Jenny Kwan, in her statement of May 21, 2017, most thoroughly and comprehensively make the case on why this development should not proceed. And need no repetition here, but my full support. Having managed the only national urban study in Canada to date, a seminal study over‐seen by Harvard trained economist, Dr. Harvey Lithwick, with expert authorities from across Canada and abroad, we know density is essential if cities are not to continue to sprawl over vast areas of the countryside. Cities must grow upwards. Densification is the general rule. But not at the expense of the most precious cultural communities in our cities such as Chinatown. If we abandon them, we lose our anchor with our heritage and help to destroy what is most precious, cultural diversity and shared memories of our rich past. Chinatown can be preserved while maintaining its historic scale and character, as Joe Wai so eloquently made the case. Chinatown, unlike most of the City, cannot grow upwards. Please pause and consider most carefully the case put forward so well on why high rise development in Chinatown threatens its survival, as cited here. Please recall the courage of Bob Andras, and earlier leadership of Paul Hellyer and Lloyd Axworthy, who resisted the demands of developers and traditional planners and the Robert Moses’ of the day, and hear also the voice of Jane Jacobs, and do the right thing for Chinatown, for Vancouver, for Canada. ‐‐ 30 ‐‐ FURTHER: Dan Coates, 613 233 8411 email@example.com
