City Conversations: Is More Housing the Only Priority?

Time: 12:30-1:30pm
Place: Rm. 1600, Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings St.
Cost: Free

Vancouver’s city council has successfully been creating new rental and affordable housing, a popular promise it made to voters. But doing so is using all the money it collects from new developments, leaving no funding for new day care, community centres, parks and other public amenities. Has the housing focus changed the balance of amenities that have made Vancouver so livable?

To frame the topic, we have Councillor George Affleck, and have invited another councillor with a different view. Then it’s your turn to question, challenge, and express your opinion. You’re free to bring your lunch.
