Donthave1million Rally June 24

This would be a good protest to support. However we also need to figure out some direct action. Maybe stop investing in the stock market and start investing in our own communities?

Wednesday, June 24:
Don to speak at #donthave1million rally

Don will be speaking at the rally organized by the Vancouverites for Affordable Housing on Wednesday, June 24 at 5pm. 

Rally details from Vancouverites for Affordable Housing: 

To keep the momentum going from the May 24th that raised awareness about the housing affordability crisis in Vancouver, Vancouverites for Affordable Housing has planned their next rally for June 24th, this time with a focus on asking our government to collect and provide essential data.

Experts agree that a variety of factors have been propelling the unsustainable and stratospheric housing prices (and its effects can be felt throughout the housing continuum, from low income housing to rentals), but the piece of the puzzle we have the least information about may be the driving force behind it all.

When pressed by MLA David Eby, Housing Minister Rich Coleman responded he's not going to research the issue of foreign capital and ownership. Without the data – we can never move forward towards finding solutions!

"Give Us Data" on Foreign Ownership & Capital Rally
Location: Vancouver Central Library
Wednesday, June 24, 2015, from 5 to 6 pm 

Confirmed speakers: Eveline Xia, rally organizer, Prof. Penny Gurstein, Director of UBC's SCARP Program, NDP MLA Jenny Kwan, NDP MP Don Davies, and MLA Green Party candidate Pete Fry.
