This event will take place on the unceded and occupied territory of the səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
Join us for our first chapter meeting of the year at Dude Chilling (Guelph) Park at 11:30 am this Sunday. We will talk about the coming mass evictions and our plan to stop them(address them?). We will also discuss a very specific eviction that is happening on the heart of the neighbourhood. Two long-time tenants and Mount Pleasant community members are being evicted from their homes at the end of September. Both are vulnerable and live with disabilities. The developer PortLiving has given them two months to vacate their homes of 20+ years. Meanwhile, the City is doing close to nothing to help them avoid homelessness and possible COVID infection. We need to take action and defend the lives and wellbeing of our neighbours.
You don't have to live in the neighbourhood to come! Bring your own food, a blanket, and plenty of water. Weather looks great! Come early and get to know your fellow renters, and build some community.
For those who can't make it in person, we will have an online meeting on Zoom same day from 5-6pm. An email will be sent soon with the link and the info. Thank you everyone!
