"How can we live twice as well yet use half as much?" Continuing to address the housing affordability crisis, homelessness, preserving both our heritage and green spaces, and building a smart city strategy is what's needed for us to address the 21st Century challenges our city faces. I stand for increasing rental only housing, adjusting the bylaws to accommodate more town homes and apartment buildings, and considering doubling the Vacancy Tax (Empty Homes Tax) in January 01, 2020.
I believe Vision Vancouver has taken significant steps forward to address these issues, but much more needs to be done. I believe Vancouver's municipal government needs to take a more direct, serious approach to address the impact of foreign investment in the Vancouver residential real estate market, and I point to a variety of working examples in similar cities across the globe.Back to view all team members
