Democracy Watch January 18th

5:02pm - 6:00pm

After headlines from Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, Democracy Watch investigates confusion surrounding the two groups who both appear to be the official organizer of Vancouver's 2018 Women’s March. The show then turns to original reporting from a public hearing held at City Hall on Tuesday night. The City's plan to develop a community garden into mix-use housing, contrasts directly with Mayor Gregor Robertson's 2016 promise to build 100% social housing at the 58 West Hastings site. Democracy Watch covers the hearing and interviews anti-poverty activist Jean Swanson, members of the Chinatown Action Group, folks from the Carnegie Community Action Project and more.
