A quiet landlord dedicated to providing low-cost housing will be remembered through house left to city

July 10th, 2018 · No Comments

I stumbled across this touching story just by prowling through Vancouver’s open bids, where I saw a call for someone to manage a house in Kitsilano to provide affordable housing.

I found out the story behind the story by talking to neighbours and reading the will of a man called Eric Pierce, who left his house to the city as part of a decades-long commitment to help regular Vancouverites be able to afford to stay here.

In a city that often seems paralyzed by the vitriolic debates over what to do about housing, nice to read about someone who just quietly did something about it.
