CBC Radio February 27, 2014. Podcast move the slider ahead to the 31:05 minutes mark, where a short interview with Shayne Ramsay, CEO of B.C. Housing, commences.
Globe & Mail: Dark history may temper public input on former hospital at Riverview.
[ Dark history? from my researches a patient was much safer at Riverview, than being out in the general public. The level of care given was exemplary, considering the sometimes bizarre circumstances the staff would find themselves in. ]
I went to the first public event that B.C. Housing has branded as Renewingriverview,with their website.
You can sign your identity possibly away, and provide online commenting via the above website, which in turn steers you to another website: Placespeak which has a convoluted sign up process that also in turn links to Twilio in their phone number confirmation procedures, and communication via telephony.
Frustrating experience I had with it all, Google, rightly informed me that email redirection was going on, and stopped an email that I sent to renewingriverview, and correctly placing any further attempted communications with these entities into my Spam folder. By all means please comment though, just be vigilant

My question would be to B.C. Housing; "How is the public supposed to give relevant well-informed input into the public process, when we are not given access to the tools required?"

Concerns with R'view open houses [ glad to see that others are also seeing through this type of micro-managing that is being foisted upon the public in this present round of "public consultation" ]
