Excerpt from The Canadian Club of Vancouver: Addresses and Proceedings, 1914-1917

I do not think we have quite realized in Canada how important it is to provide proper housing conditions for the people merely as a matter of business. Sir William Lever, the great soap manufacturer, has built a model vil lage for his workers at Port Sunlight, and he has stated, although the houses he provided did not realize a full return on his investment, the village was really a paying proposi tion because each of the men who lived in it was worth a dollar per week more to him than if he lived in a crowded slum. Messrs. Cadbury have had the same experience at Bourneville near Birmingham. In Canada we recognize the value of human fitness when we set up a certain standard of physique and mental capacity under the immigration regulations. That is all very well, but what do we do to secure the maintenance of that health and efficiency once the immigrants have settled in our cities? Many come di rect to the cities and others who come ostensibly to take up agricultural pursuits really come to join the city crowd of unskilled workers. It is necessary to have a construct ive scheme of town planning working side by side with efficient housing and public health legislation, The prepa ration of such a scheme for Vancouver is necessarv not only for purposes of business and health, but in order that the city may develop with' proper regard to economy and with some regard to the beautiful site and surroundings in which it has the good fortune to be placed.
