DTES BLOCK PARTY TO BLOCK CONDOS ON THE 100 BLOCK
Sat. Sep 17 at around 4 pm
Music, food, and the last bit of summer sun!
Marc Williams wants to build condos at the old Pantages Site in the Downtown Eastside. Condos in the heart of the neighbourhood will cause higher property values, higher rents in single-room occupancies, displacement of current residents, increased policing, and low-income residents feeling unwelcome in their own neighbourhood.
We are getting the neighbourhood and all our allies together to protect the site for 100% social housing for low-income residents. The DTES is not for developers to make millions, it is for our vibrant and vital low-income community!
