Faces of a Community | November 7, 2012

dis·crim·i·na·tion – prejudiced or prejudicial outlook, action, or treatment

When people use discrimination based on where people live, or how old they are, or if they own or rent, they are merely trying to demean. This is unfortunate and unnecessary, but we hear of it often in the media, or in the political process, as one side endevours to gain advantage over another.

In the end, we are all just people, we are alike in more ways than not. Those who would use this tactic, do so with method. It is the “divide and conquer” technique. If we as a community, rise above this tactic, and unite ourselves, respecting eachother, recognizing we have the same concerns, we will take back the advantage.

Here are the faces of our community. Here are their concerns.

If you feel like we do, join our “Give Communities Voice” rally on the steps of the City Hall 453 W. 12th, at 12:30 on Friday, November 16th, 2012. We need the Vancouver Vision council and the planners to see the results of their decisions. We need to show them the Faces of Our Community.

  1. Give Communities Voice!! I could not agree more. I cannot support a policy that imposes developments on neighbourhoods that are significantly out of scale with existing usage without warning and without recourse. What will you do if a 6-story building is built across from you? If we do not stand up for our community today, when will we stand up. I did not vote for Gregor so he could revolutionize the nature of my neighbourhood. I never recall him saying that this was his intention. It is OUR city. NOT the planning department’s. NOT Vision’s. NOT Gregor’s.
