Vancouver City Council Candidates Field Questions from Creative Community

On October 14, the City of Vancouver will be conducting a by-election to fill the positions of one city councillor and nine school board trustees. Noticing some common discussions amongst Vancouver's creative community, Mark Busse of CreativeMornings/Vancouver sent four questions to each of the city council candidates:

  • What does ‘creative economy’ mean to you, and what’s your vision for growing Vancouver’s creative economy?
  • How will you address real estate speculation and housing affordability in Vancouver?
  • Have you supported public space activations in Vancouver, and will you in the future? (i.e. closures of 800 Robson and Bute/Robson for public space plazas, laneway activations, etc.)
  • What message/promise would you like to communicate to Vancouver’s creative community?

He has posted their responses publicly here.
