Mayor Gregor Robertson encourages voters to support Vision’s positive plan over NPA negativity

Surrounded by members of the Vision Vancouver team, Mayor Gregor Robertson encouraged voters to consider which party has the best plan to move the city forward as they prepare to head to the polls tomorrow.

He delivered his remarks at Delamont Park near Arbutus and Broadway, which is where a Broadway Subway would extend to from the VCC-Clark station.

“I love this city, and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished together,” said Mayor Robertson. “What I’ve heard most during this campaign is the passion of the people of Vancouver for this city, and the positive outlook they have for the future.

Two former Mayors and a current Liberal MP today announced their support for Vision Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, the latest of several high profile endorsements he has received during the campaign.

“There is a lot at risk in this election and that’s why I’ve chosen to endorse Vision Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson,” said former Mayor, Senator Larry Campbell. “I have always believed that we, as a city, cannot leave the vulnerable and less fortunate behind, and Gregor has shown the commitment and program to do this.”

Former Mayor and B.C. Premier Mike Harcourt agreed. “Gregor Roberson and Vision Vancouver are committed to building the Broadway Subway, building more affordable housing, and, increasing childcare spaces,” said Harcourt. “This is a close election and there is a big risk with the NPA and Kirk LaPointe. They will cut environmental and housing programs, have no plan on transit, and would take us backwards. Let’s not take that risk.”

2 days before election, Mayor Robertson contrasts Vision's positive choice with the backward, right-wing NPA

With advance polls closed, and the final chance to vote coming up on Saturday, Mayor Gregor Robertson and the Vision Vancouver team continued to advance their positive plan for Vancouver’s future, while highlighting the risk of a backwards NPA in a close election.

"There is a huge difference between the NPA and Vision Vancouver on the issues voters care about, and a lot at stake in this election,” said Robertson. “Kirk LaPointe and the NPA are not interested in dealing with affordable housing, they’ve fumbled on transit, and they promise to roll back our Greenest City plan. Kirk LaPointe and the NPA have walked away from the tough questions because they know voters won’t like their answers.

Vision Vancouver releases final four ads of 2014 campaign

With two days until election day, Vision Vancouver has released their final four advertisements. The two TV and two radio spots will be in wide circulation as of this morning.

The ads feature Mayor Gregor Robertson directly asking voters for their support to continue the progressive leadership Vision Vancouver has taken.

“I love Vancouver and I believe in what we’re doing together,” says Robertson in the ads. “Like building a greener city, and creating new jobs in digital and clean technology.”

“There’s a lot more we need to do now. From standing up to more oil tankers, to making the Broadway Subway our top priority. I’m committed to Vancouver. I would be honoured if you would give me the opportunity to continue as your Mayor. So I’m asking for your vote. Thank-you.”
