There are now 200 units of non-market housing on that site. There are also too many units of market condos, and the Woodward's also contributed to the brute force gentrification of the Downtown Eastside: thetyee.ca/News/2015/02/2…

1/ Dear #vanpoli & #vanre folks who are using "historical racism" as a reason to abolish zoning in certain parts of town: Please don't. It's wrong. It's white saviourism where you're using people of colour (PoC) as pawns for your own agenda. Thread on why. translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?ac…
2/ By advocating for liberalization of zoning using historical racism as a reason, you are essentially trying to position it as a form of reconciliation. But is it actually reconciliation?
3/ 1st Q on whether this is reconciliation: Who's going to benefit most from this & how? Is it folks who're historically discriminated against? Will the result be more equitable? Is there fair redress/actions involved that affected ppl recognize or has agreed on? No in this case.

Saddened & surprised at ignorance of claims like: #105keefer is "just about emotions/nostalgia".
No. It's about a current community in crisis. Seniors, usually marginalized by public process, spoke up to try & save their homes.
This is their concrete day to day lives.
