Swanson on 4575 Granville St & Marpole Crosswalk Feedback

5:01pm - 5:56pm

After local headlines, reporter Alex de Boer speaks with COPE city councillor Jean Swanson about last week’s contested redevelopment rejection at 4575 Granville Street. Councillor Swanson says her major concern with supporting this particular redevelopment, is its unaffordability. After that, News Collective reporters Christina Song and Adeline Peng ask Vancouverites what they think of a new South Granville, three-section crosswalk, designed by Musqueam artist Robyn Sparrow. The show ends with a collective discussion on public art.
