    Local government must have councilors sit for one year and the mayor two, you cannot have a 77,000 voters deciding a candidate to council when the population is 600,000+ in Vancouver. You cannot have local governments making decisions on land owned by the people of British Columbia it must be put to a Vote (Re Casino Expansion and relocation) this has to be changed in the Municipal Act, local governments cannot make this decision the land does belong to them
