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

On Tuesday June 11th, Vancouver City Council unanimously passed several measures designed to improve renter protections. In a tweet that same day, Mayor Kennedy Stewart described the measures as, “Canada's broadest and most comprehensive series of protections for renters.” But is that statement accurate?

Star Vancouver City Hall reporter Jen St. Denis unpacks the details of this newly approved report and explains crucial differences in how renters who are "demovicted" versus renters who are "renovicted," are protected.
