About VWPT

Viewpoint Vancouver is a curated forum on the past, present, and future of our region. We talk about how we live and move in cities, sharing information and ideas on urban planning and design, culture, mobility, and politics.


Gordon Price launched this project in 2003 as Price Tags, an electronic newsletter which evolved into a blog to share his perspectives with friends and colleagues. In 2018 it birthed Price Talks as a podcast. In 2021 Price Tags re-launched as Viewpoint Vancouver, with the goal of becoming the region’s go-to source for urbanist news and issues. Viewpoint’s contributors are mainly based in the Vancouver region, covering issues in the Vancouver region, the Pacific Northwest, and the world.
