THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: A community forum


SATURDAY NOVEMBER 14, 20009 marks the one year anniversary of the last election day in Vancouver; a day that resulted in a significant change in the political landscape and leadership of our city. This community event marks this anniversary with a review of the highlights of the past year in Vancouver municipal politics, particularly in the areas of housing, planning and development; fiscal management and economic development; and leadership.


While some of the participants have past ties to the NPA, others do not. It is proposed that this not be a highly-charged partisan event. Rather, the intention is to celebrate the one year anniversary of the election, take a look at what has been happening, and engage in substantive discussions on key issues to hopefully identify strategies and actions for the coming year.
