British Columbians deserve affordable, livable housing in thriving, healthy communities. The BC Greens Riding Associations of Burnaby, Tri-Cities, and New Westminster are hosting a Housing Townhall on Tuesday, November 9th moderated by BC Green Leader Sonia Furstenau. We will be joined by panellists covering different areas related to housing, to provide an amazing discussion on how we can achieve affordable, livable housing.
We will be following covid protocols and will be requiring vaccines at the event. We will be checking vaccines at the door. The event will take place at Fountainhead Networking and Co-Working Space which is located at 3242 Westwood St. #204, Coquitlam, BC. The town hall starts at 7:00 pm and ends at 8:30 pm.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
