A councillor could be removed from office, masks will be encouraged, intrepid data journalism, urbanist hopes dashed, anguish over social housing sales and parking for veterans.
Lots to catch up on in Vancouver city politics.
We start off discussing the court action aims to remove Vancouver city councillor Michael Wiebe from office before turning to council's split over mandatory masks.
Those splits are made apparent by an intrepid Reddit user who plotted councillors votes on the urbanist/left-right chart, which explains why Vancouver's mayor was ‘flabbergasted’ in housing plan defeat.
We then look at what we learned following BC Housing being ordered to reveal details of deal to sell Little Mountain lands to developer and we take staff's side on Vancouver council's decision to approve year-round free parking for veterans over city staff objections.
Finally, the Park Board killed Matthew's dreams of a new outdoor pool in Mount Pleasant.
And in our Vancouveratta we look at the first Vancouverattan, Major JS Matthews. Make sure to check out the Vancouver Archives YouTube channel.
