CiTR News: On The Point Episode January 4, 2018

Democracy Watch January 4th

5:02pm - 6:00pm

It's the first episode of Democracy Watch from 2018! Welcome to a new year of adversarial, local news coverage! In this episode we feature an original report on an ant-eviction protest that took place at the Belvedere Court apartment earlier in the week. This protest was put on by the Vancouver Tenants Union and the Belvedere Residents Association in response to the pending eviction of a long-time tenant. The protest was meant to highlight the city's growing trend of evictions through coercion, especially targeting seniors and vulnerable tenants. After this report, the News Collective reflects on the best of our original reporting from 2017!
