Today, debate on the #BroadwayPlan begins – the largest expansion of renter rights in over 50 years. It's how we can protect today’s renters, make room for tomorrow’s, and give everyone peace of mind. Read more in my op-ed on @DailyHiveVan: dailyhive.com/vancouver/kenn… #vanpoli

Thank you Minister @Dave_Eby for supporting the Broadway Plan, especially our leading measures to ensure current tenants are protected. You also write that the plan can help unlock new @BC_Housing projects, helping tomorrow's renters as well. Can't wait to get started! #vanpoli

200+ speakers signed up to speak to Council on the #BroadwayPlan If we don’t get through the speakers and decision today, we will be back on May 25 at 3pm to finish this item. #VanPoli

Forward Together Vancouver retweeted
This article is spot on. The calls for a "Paris-style" alternative fail to acknowledge that low-rise only works if EVERYTHING is replaced. And even then, strict tenant protects and below market rents would be almost impossible to achieve. #vanpoli theglobeandmail.com/arts/art…

The City of Van has a bloated comms dept, but they can't muster the time to provide a response to claims of inaccurate renderings. This, in itself, shows why the public tends to be suspicious of what the city presents in this plan. This is totally on city staff.

Bill is actually underestimating at 1,000 towers. Planning has said there can be 2 towers per block, presumably both sides of the lane Xs conservatively 60% of the 492 city blocks in the proposed Plan = 1181 towers from 18 to 40 storeys. #vanpoli

Ugh 20 mins after this photo was taken I was nearly hit head on by an suv on my bike. The driver thought they would shave time off their trip by going the wrong way around a roundabout, cutting the left hand turn. We so desperately need protected bike infrastructure. #vanpoli
