A thriving sustainable, local economy?

I headed over to the City of Vancouver website this morning to find some information and was welcomed with this image and caption. I couldn’t help myself – I had to capture it. Does the City realize the irony and contradictions with the image and caption? Is the cruise ship industry part of a local, sustainable economy? I’m not so sure about that – and I’m not so sure this type of messaging is particularly helpful. If you, too, are somewhat puzzled by the sustainability rhetoric in this city, you might be interested in an article published at The Mainlander.
