Pack City Hall: Renoviction Ban Now


A most important motion by COPE Councillor Jean Swanson is being voted on by the Council on Tuesday, Dec 4th, 5pm. 

At 4:30pm just before the Council convenes, Jean will stand with tenants and supporters, in the room on the third floor of City Hall, and address the media about the significance of this vote. 

The vote will show who the City works for: renters or developers. Join us at 4:30 and stay to witness the vote. Let's pack the City Hall and let the Council know we are watching.
