“Give Us Data” Rally, June 24th.
When it comes to foreign investment and capital in our real estate market, the developers and real estate lobbyists are selling us questionable statistics, but we’re not buying them. They’re telling us everything is fine, but we disagree. They say that foreign capital and investment isn’t a problem, but we want evidence!
The “Give Us Data” rally on June 24th is how we’re going to get it. Organized by Vancouverites for Affordable Housing, the rally brings together sympathetic politicians and citizens like us to send a clear message to all three levels of government: we demand collection of data on homeownership in Greater Vancouver, data that covers vacant units, speculation, and foreign ownership and capital. …
Because we need a political solution for our housing crisis, speakers include politicians who have already shown their support:
MLA candidate Pete Fry
MLA Jenny Kwan
MP Don Davies
And Vancouverites for Affordable Housing’s Eveline Xia
