A plan by the Metro Vancouver regional authority would have taxpayers spending half a billion public dollars on an incinerator to solve the region’s garbage problem. Would that send Vancouver's Greenest City aspirations up in smoke? VO digs into Metro Vancouver's garbage story. We find conflicts that can be as epic as petty. Fascinating characters. Turf wars. Meetings taking place behind closed doors. Contracts worth millions. Exciting, new technologies. International intrigue. And ordinary people fighting for clean air and healthy children.
