Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

There are a number of articles chronicling stories of personal and community response. Feel free to add ones you find that illuminate the importance of working together and the lessons learned about how to make a community based response more effective.
