Lack of affordability is central issue in Vancouver election

RJ Aquino, Georgia Straight

…. We need councillors who can understand and advocate for all Vancouverites. Every resident benefits when diverse communities are engaged and represented.

For me, lack of affordability is the central issue in the upcoming election. We need affordable housing for working families, for seniors, for young people. We need public transit that’s affordable and accessible. We need quality, affordable public childcare for families like my wife and I and our baby girl.

I pledge, not just to talk at City Hall about the crisis of affordability, not just to criticize, but to work for positive solutions that benefit all of us….
