Two and a half years ago this mayor and council were elected to office at the City of Vancouver promising to work together and get things done. They have proven unable to improve any of the big issues facing our city: homelessness, permit delays, rising property tax rates, a lack of affordable rental homes or crime, to name a few. This mayor and council have simply kicked the can down the road another four years as things in the city just get worse.
