Vancouver's Affordability Trap

It's hard to know what to make of B.C. Premier Christy Clark's response to Mayor Gregor Robertson's better-late-than-never request for government action around Vancouver's affordability trap.

Real Estate Association, things become a little more clear. This is a decision born more from ideology than from any evidence-based analysis.

Share your talents and experience as a Regional Rep

Nominations are now open for the BC Green Party Regional Representatives!

This year at the party’s AGM, a motion was passed to reorganize our 14 regions into 6 with boundaries based on Elections BC’s regional definitions. This will allow us to have a more focused and supported regional engagement. We are working together to set the stage for the 2017 election and expanding on regional support is a major step to the goal of forming government.

Wild sockeye salmon is the most financially lucrative renewable marine resource on the West Coast. Thanks in large part to sockeye trade, generations of coastal peoples have built strong economies and vibrant cultures.

Our provincial and federal governments keep putting fossil fuels ahead of better economic opportunities and more sustainable practices.
