Affordable Housing: Making it a Priority - a coffee gathering and fundraiser with False Creek Green Candidate Daniel Tseghay and City Councillor Adriane Carr! RSVP now

Please join Daniel Tseghay, BC Green Party candidate for Vancouver-False Creek, and Adriane Carr, Vancouver's first Green city councillor, for a coffee fundraiser in the common room of Candela Place, a 62-unit, income-subsidized housing complex, for Daniel's campaign to become our riding's Member of the Legislative Assembly of BC. Candela is operated by More than a Roof Housing Society in conjunction with Coast Mental Health, the Ministry of Housing and Social Development, and BC Housing, and is also the residence of Daniel's campaign manager

Adriane will open our event with a discussion of the municipal role in helping to keep housing affordable. Daniel will then be speaking about the need for affordable housing in our province and how the Green party plans to alleviate the gaps in the current system for those most at risk of housing insecurity and homelessness - for without housing, a person's entire life and ability to hold a job or even maintain their health is jeopradized.

Admission by cash donation (min. suggested $20, maximum $50 per Elections BC rules). In addition to donations for Daniel's campaign for MLA, there will be a donation jar for More than a Roof Housing Society. However, no one will be turned away for lack of funds and the event will be open free of charge to Candela residents, and other low income/unwaged people.

Please RSVP so we know how many to expect. To RSVP or for more information, please contact Ryan Hill (Campaign Manager) at 778-709-3847, or at [email protected].

IMPORTANT: Your RSVP is requested for the purposes of ensuring the security of our building.

There will also be a donation jar for More Than A Roof Housing Society (MTR), as an expression of the Green Party of BC's gratitude for Candela's managers authorizing us to use the space.

Disclaimer: Neither Candela Place nor More Than A Roof Housing endorse this event or Daniel's campaign for MLA.
