Dear Friends and Family that live in the City of Vancouver,
I’ve recently joined a new municipal party that offers a local, community-focused option for the Vancouver elections next October.
TEAM for a Livable Vancouver is all about thoughtful, well-developed policies that place our neighbourhoods – residents, businesses, and organizations – at the centre of civic decision-making.
The party was formed by people from a diversity of backgrounds and affiliations, all concerned about the current direction of our city. We’re looking for new members who share our concerns about:
- Prioritizing affordable housing over the city’s rampant rezoning practices that inflate property prices.
- Addressing climate change with sustainable, practical solutions that work for residents as well as businesses.
- Fixing the existing budget process that treats residents like the city’s ATM.
- Making city business transparent so residents can play a meaningful role in planning decisions.
You can read a full list of TEAM’s policy directions at voteteam.ca/positions.
Our success depends on a groundswell of support from like-minded people with similar concerns – from every neighbourhood, from all corners of the city. I hope you’ll be among them.
I’m sending you this note because I think this is something you’d want to be a part of, and would want to share with others. Check out the website and tell me what you think!
Thanks and happy holidays!
