Green Party of Vancouver announces Council nominees

April 1, 2014 Leave a comment

Vancouver - In a press conference held on the steps of City Hall at 10am this morning, the Green Party of Vancouver announced the four nominees that have been endorsed by the party’s Candidate Screening Committee to run for City Council under the Green Party banner in the November 15th, 2014 civic elections.

Seeking to serve Vancouverites for a second term on Council is Adriane Carr, the first elected Green Party of Vancouver City Councilor and one of the civic party’s original founders 30 years ago. But this year, buoyed by strong public support and positive poll results, Carr will not be running solo. This morning Carr and the Green Party of Vancouver introduced a team of three community leaders who, along with Carr, have sought the party’s endorsement for City Council this year.

They are: Cleta Brown, a retired lawyer and tireless social justice advocate; Pete Fry, Chair of the Strathcona Residents Association, and Tracey Moir, Founder & Chair of Oakridge-Langara Area Residents (OLAR).

Lift-off Party!

The Green Party of Vancouver is on the rise! 

20 AHA MEDIA at  Green Party of Vancouver Lift-Off Party on Wed March 5, 2014

The messages from the polls are clear: the Green Party of Vancouver‘s commitments to real democracy, real sustainability and a real citizen-led vision for the future of Vancouver have found resonance with the people of Vancouver. As with the Green Party of Canada’s Elizabeth May in Ottawa, Vancouverites have seen how sole Green Councilor Adriane Carr has championed the issues that matter most to them, and now they want more Greens on Council to have an even greater impact.

SPOTA MOSAIC & PLACES THAT MATTER for 9th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Saturday November 3, 2012

November 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Unveiling, Plaque Presentation & Reception
Saturday November 3
3:30pm – 4pm Unveiling & Plaque Presentation
Walter and Mary Lee Chan House, sidewalk 658 Keefer
4pm -5pm Reception
Strathcona Community Centre, 601 Keefer

Urban renewal – the City’s vision circa 1958 – was a major  and drastic overhaul of what the city would be. One of the major thrusts of this plan was to put a freeway through the city that would destroy the neighbourhood in Vancouver’s East End (later known as Strathcona).
In 1968 after close to a decade of opposing the changes, the Strathcona Property Owners and Tenants Association (SPOTA) was formalized and the neighbourhood had a voice. It was heard both locally and nationally, and a movement was born that resulted in a new way of thinking in respect to urban “social” planning.
The SPOTA Mosaic pays tribute to the founding members and supporters of SPOTA. The concept of a permanent legacy to honour those who fought to stop the freeway was originally conceived during the Downtown Eastside Public Realm Arts Plan process (Richard Evans, Terry Hunter, Carmen Rosen). This mosaic and location was conceived and developed by long-time Strathcona resident Esther Rausenberg, designed by Richard Tetrault, and created by Richard Tetrault and Jerry Whitehead. The project is an initiative of the Community Arts Council of Vancouver – Creative Pathways project, with support from the City of Vancouver Great Beginnings Program.
Also being placed is a Vancouver Heritage Foundation Places That Matter plaque to recognize the home of Walter and Mary Chan, community members who led the fight against the freeway. For more information about the plaque project:
Reception to follow at 4pm at the Strathcona Community Centre. Free

This event was on Day 11 of  the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!
