I support the policies of The City We Need platform for the October 20 Vancouver municipal election and candidates who pledge to work towards them, including:
A Four-Year Rent Freeze in Vancouver: Freeze rents on homes and apartments, and for small businesses.
Tax the Rich to Build Homes: Introduce a mansion tax. Use the funds to build quality public housing and end homelessness.
Protect the Environment: Respect Indigenous Sovereignty by stopping pipelines on unceded Indigenous land and VPD arrests of Indigenous land defenders. Support clean energy for transit and homes.
Make Vancouver Affordable: Raise minimum wage and welfare. Work towards free transit for everyone, starting with children and people earning under $50,000.
