Vancouver Greens: More from developers for low-cost housing, maybe luxury tax, lots more real talking with residents promised

September 18th, 2014 · 27 Comments

Feels like the municipal campaign in Vancouver finally started to pick up some speed today, as the Greens launched their platform and Vision Vancouver had the first news conference with real news, announcing more money for school lunches for poor kids. (And the NPA sniping away at that.)

I mostly covered the Green announcement, as I think they’re interesting to watch. They’re clearly fighting hard to become the third party of choice for Vancouver voters and, from what I hear from people more expert than me, they have a chance because of their ability to attract votes from different parts of the political spectrum.

My story is up just now and in the dead-tree edition tomorrow.
