Where there's a will, there's a way

Despite concerns about the safety of taller wood-frame buildings, the Campbell administration pressed ahead with its decision to allow those structure - which came into effect on April 6. And it's likely the will to do so came from the very top of government. The reason: speaking notes for a September 17, 2008 stakeholder meeting explicitly state Premier Gordon Campbell and Housing and Social Development Minister Rich Coleman "are very keen on the exploration of this idea; they are very supportive." Those notes were prepared for building and safety policy branch executive director Jeff Vasey.
