Affordable Housing Rally

affordable_housingDH1M.jpgBe heard! Come with your friends and family and join Generation Squeeze, the creator of the #DontHave1Million Twitter campaign and other speakers at the Vancouver Art Gallery for a discussion on how the affordability crisis in Vancouver is affecting you and the community.

Much has been said about the stratospheric house, townhouse and unaffordable condo prices in Vancouver, and there seems to be no end in sight. Will we be able to retain top talent in this city? Will families and young professionals leave in frustration? How can we help our elected representatives understand that it's times likes these in which we look to them for leadership? 

Speakers:
-Paul Kershaw, founder of Generation Squeeze
-Eveline Xia, founder of #DontHave1Million affordable housing Twitter campaign
-Saeid Fard, author of blog post "The Decline of Vancouver"
-Wes Regan, citizen journalist at the Vancouver Observer
-Tony Roy, Executive Director of BC Non-Profit Housing Association

Note: we are not trying to detract from low-income housing or solutions for the homeless - we welcome everyone to the conversation. In fact, the entire housing spectrum is tightly-linked and works in a cascading manner: high house prices results in high rents, and continuously increasing rents will lead to an increasing number of people who can't afford housing, period.
