I couldn't help but write this blog post today, because.... DEPUTY MAYOR!!!
6 years ago, almost to the day, we sat in a room together, some of you who are members now, and many others whose support was so critical, and we decided to do something bold and courageous. We started a political party that would speak to the needs of our neighbours and our friends across the city. We committed to doing things that were difficult, to honouring each others' experiences and perspectives, to being kind to one another, and to being bold in our hopes and dreams for Vancouver.
The last 6 years have been so wonderfully challenging and inspiring. The work by so many people who have come together under our OneCity banner has made us all proud and we thank you for your support. Today, along with you, I cheer the fact that our own Christine Boyle is serving as Vancouver's Deputy Mayor. What a long way we've come.
Thank you all so much for sharing the journey, and for doing your very best to make Vancouver a more just and kind place to live - a Vancouver for Everyone.
