From the Paper:

"The Waterloo Region should be planning for the public interest. As discussed above, in a metropolitan area such as the Waterloo region, planners should represent the various segments of the population as a whole, in age, culture and occupation. In the case of planning for the region, demography becomes the guide for the future. Those who represent the citizens must share the interests of both residents and commercial interests, and create a long-range plan which benefits the community both fiscally and in quality of life. These planners must account for differences in interests among neighborhoods, individuals and developmental forces. Accounting for the values and facts that face them and challenge them will help them make wise decisions. Both the public and the private sectors must be represented and accommodated in future plans."
