A "Green" Wal-Mart?

According to the Vancouver Sun, Wal-Mart is going to extraordinary lengths to meet local government's demands:

Wal-Mart Canada has unveiled a $30-million-plus, environmentally correct design -- with windmills, geothermal heating and 250 dogwood trees -- for its controversial store on Vancouver's Southeast Marine Drive.

The design aims to appease Vancouver city council members who in 2003 told the U.S.-based retailing giant to come up with the "greenest" design possible if it wants a chance to build its first store in Vancouver.
