5:01pm - 6:00pm

In this episode reporter Frances Bula breaks down City Council's January 30th vote to endorse an extended subway line out to UBC. Bula discusses the significance of all three Green Councillors voting in favour of this motion and what it means that Councillors Jean Swanson and Colleen Hardwick both voted in opposition. We hear final speeches made by both Hardwick and Swanson before casting their vote against this motion.

The show concludes in an interview with incumbent Green City Councillor Adriane Carr. Carr discusses the City's recent vote to declare a climate emergency and the need for collaboration with Vancouver's diversity of communities when seeking environmental justice.
