Who owns Vancouver? Who runs the city? How do developers, the corporate businessmen, the lawyers and the politicians relate to each other?

This book carefully describes the power structure that made most of the decisions about what happened in Vancouver in the 1960s and early 1970s. Donald Gutstein reveals the tangled web of corporate ownership and influence, family relationships and social contacts that held the Vancouver business establishment together.

First published in 1975, Vancouver Ltd. offers an in-depth look at the politics and economics of development in Canada's third-largest city at a crucial time in its history.
