I also grew up in Vancouver and echo the other comments about their approach.

What we should emulate from Vancouver is a strong planning department with high standards and consistent goals pursued over decades (from the Spaxman era of 1973-1989 to at least the early 2000s).

They had standards, but were flexible with developers in achieving their overall goals.

I would have preferred a more nuanced response from the planning department, but Lamb's attitude that he doesn't need to take the opinions of planners and residents into account since he can just go to the OMB does not lead to good results.
