E-166 Green lights at the Crossroads

Episode Summary

Can Vancouver's progressives find unity and will the NPA lose theirs?

Episode Notes

Vancouver's progressive parties jockeyed in advance of the Vancouver District & Labour Council's meetings to try to reach a unity consensus. Ian reports from Jean Swanson's The City We Need platform launch and Patrick reports from the Crossroads conference where he spoke with mayoral hopefuls Shauna Sylvester and Kennedy Stewart.

Then we take a preliminary crack at the state of the NPA race - hours before the entire thing fell apart. Nevertheless we presciently discussed what the possible ramifications of a premature end to Hector Bremner's NPA mayoral bid might be.

Finally, we touch on the School Tax revolt, changes to the city's liquor laws, some local podcast recommendations (SOLD! and Metro Conversations) and how you can work on the Vancouver election.
