May 31: Georgia Straight - Will Mayor Robertson renew the leases?
"Co-ops are a model of mixed-income housing that was worked beautifully since the 1930s, and continues to be a highly sought after, effective way to provide affordable housing in an increasingly unaffordable city. They are financially accessible for people with low to moderate incomes and they are inclusive and diverse, welcoming people from different backgrounds, socioeconomic status, and abilities in a supportive, secure environment."
May 31: Vancouver Sun - Renewing co-op leases will support affordable housing
"The co-op model brings together individuals and families from a mix of income levels and all manner of backgrounds, creating strong, vibrant communities supported by safe, secure and permanently affordable housing. These are places where neighbours look out for one another, help fill in the childcare gaps for a single parent, pick up groceries for an elderly resident, welcome people with disabilities, and where everyone pitches in for the good of the whole."
May 28: Renew the Leases
"Over 50 rental co-ops are waiting for lease renewals. 40 of these are urgent, unable to secure financing for urgently-needed repairs." Sign the petition urging Mayor Gregor Robinson and the current council to renew these leases before their terms in office end.
