Seeking Office Episode January 24, 2019

Rental 100

5:30pm - 6:30pm

From CiTR's News Collective, this is season two of Seeking Office — At-Large. Bringing you innovative storytelling from Metro Vancouver.

On January 15th, Vancouver City Council passed two new developments at 2230 Harrison Drive and 3532 East Hastings. The project at 3532, was passed under a housing policy known as "Rental 100." Rental 100 incentivizes the creation of rental housing — as opposed to condos — but does not specify how much rent should be considered "affordable." In this episode, both Sara Sagaii of the Vancouver Tenants Union and City Councilor Adriane Carr give their perspective on whether the new Council should continue assessing rental developments under the Rental 100 policy.
