The Georgia Straight has given a glowing recommendation of RJ Aquino for Vancouver City Council.
"OneCity has developed some of the most thoughtful policies of any party competing in this election ... Aquino, a high-tech worker, pointed out that he and his wife spend more each month on childcare than they do on rent, and he’s promising to push for a $10-a-day child-care program 'in a Vancouver neighbourhood that desperately needs it' ...
"Aquino has the support of some thoughtful community activists, including public-health-care advocate Colleen Fuller, urban aboriginal leader Scott Clark, and writer Trish Kelly, as well as comedian Charlie Demers and NDP MLAs David Eby, Mable Elmore, and Jenny Kwan. If Aquino gets elected, he will become the first councillor of Filipino descent in the city’s history."
