In this episode of Democracy Watch we start out with a deep dive into a case of racial profiling and harassment that took place at UBC on June 2nd. After that, we hear from School Board Trustees Jennifer Reddy and Lois Chan-Pedley who have differing perspectives on a motion to remove Cecil Rhodes' name from a local school. The second half of the show explores the stakes of Saturday's byelection in Electoral Area A with outgoing Director, Mike Feeley. We end the show with a breakdown of Vancouver's newly passed renter protections, featuring Star Vancouver City Hall reporter, Jen St. Denis.
