Kudos to UVIC

Today's announcement from UVic outlining their decision to take 6 months to engage with the community on their parkade plans is the right way to go.  Just because the proponent is a community institution providing great service and amenities, it doesn't provide them with unlimited social licence.  Thanks UVic for showing the maturity to understand the importance of engaging your neighbours.     I look forward to seeing your project progress.
