John Smith was mentioned in the Globe and Mail article, "How Vancouver found a path to a deal with Canadian Pacific Railway," which details the City of Vancouver's deal to purchase from CPR the Arbutus Greenway corridor, ending a highly publicized and long-running dispute.

Notable mentions include:

Mr. Smith’s contribution to a final deal on the Arbutus Corridor would be crucial. Whenever talks hit a snag, he would somehow find another way to keep “moving the ball up the field,” as Mr. Magee described it to others.”

“While not exactly owning a moniker that made him stand out from the pack, Mr. Smith, a Brit with a law degree from Oxford and a senior partner at Lawson Lundell, had long impressed Mr. Pattison with his legal savvy.
