The Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development tabled a research project last night which recommends the communities of the Northeast Avalon increase their level of cooperation. “There are so many issues facing people who live in neighbouring communities and throughout the region that demand inter-municipal co-operation and regional co-operation… There’s nothing theoretical or esoteric or wannabe about it. It’s a must do if we’re going to live in a way that we don’t have complete gridlock,” said Rob Greenwood, Director of the Centre. The report, co-authored by Kelly Vodden, argues that municipal lines are losing their importance, and that cooperation within the region could bring great rewards.
