Rally for Affordable Housing Action

Last year we kicked out the BC Liberals and welcomed the BC NDP who promised to fix this housing crisis. On February 20, Premier John Horgan and Finance Minister Carole James will unveil the long-awaited budget, and we expect them to deliver.

 

Residents across the Lower Mainland and beyond need to pressure government to ensure housing is accessible for residents of ALL income levels. We are concerned citizens from diverse backgrounds working together to stop the housing affordability crisis from spreading, and we call upon everyone affected to join us. No matter your income, age, or background, we ask you to stand with us and raise your voices on Sunday, February 18.

We don’t know what this provincial budget will hold, but we know that we must show elected leaders that we are a united and strong voice. Our future depends upon it.

 

Together, we will tell government that we NO LONGER tolerate our province to be run by profit-driven individuals and corporations. We demand our government close the loopholes, punish lawbreakers, clamp down on exploitation, and even the playing field across the province.

Major partners include, but are not limited to:

  • BCGEU

  • HALT

  • Pets OK BC

  • Richmond Farmwatch

  • Vancouver Is Falling
