Presentation by Gordon Price on Motordom (or designing cities/regions around the auto), and the affect that it has on our cities. He also looks at how the pillar need to building auto-oriented communities; cheap, secure energy is coming to a close and that puts us in bad place. He looks at how due to project such as the Gateway Program and lack of transit funding, the South Fraser is looked into a auto-oriented future.

He also presents example of good urban design in Metro Vancouver.

And yet what we do will be essential to maintaining the economic, environmental and social health of this prized region on the globe. So what is out plan. That's Part III.
