OneCity's 2018 Council Platform
(Please click on each headline to read more!)
Focus on progressive, pragmatic solutions to Vancouver's housing crisis, like fighting for low and modest income residents to live in every neighbourhood across the city.
Create a more vibrant and inclusive city by protecting arts and cultural spaces; deepening the commitment of the City of Vancouver to a living wage; and supporting local businesses that provide vital services, create jobs, and keep money in our communities.
Every Neighbourhood for Everyone means that all people can safely move around all parts of the city regardless of ability or immigration status. OneCity will fully implement a Sanctuary city across all city services as well as advocate for reforms to our local election system that would provide a more fair result and encourage participation.
Prioritize reconciliation with Indigenous communities by developing housing strategies with Indigenous communities and honouring languages, territories, and histories.
Those most impacted by the effects of climate change, vulnerable and low-income communities, locally and globally, deserve to be prioritized in the implementation of climate solutions. Public transit needs to be affordable, accessible, and robust. We need complete communities that are diverse and affordable.
Fight for all Vancouverites to have access to mental health and addictions services that work for them. Support decriminalization and overdose prevention measures, with a longer term plan to legalize all illicit drugs.
