YOUTUBE VIDEO: Flashback to a Watershed Moment — “Beyond the Guidebook Initiative” was subject of inter-ministerial announcement at 2008 Gaining Ground Summit
Note to Reader:
In May 2008, the Deputy Minister (Dale Wall) for the Ministry of Community Services used the occasion of a keynote address at the Gaining Ground Summit to make an inter-ministerial announcement about the embryo Beyond the Guidebook initiative.
The New Business As Usual
“We are using the slogan ‘The New Business As Usual’ to convey the message that, for change to really occur, practices that until now have been viewed as the exception must become the norm moving forward. We have to build regulatory models and develop models of practice and expertise to support The New Business As Usual,” stated Dale Wall.
“The ‘new Water Balance Model’ underpins Beyond the Guidebook: The New Business As Usual, an initiative to further advance implementation of green infrastructure policies and practices throughout British Columbia. The desired outcome is to create liveable communities and protect stream health.”
