Downtown Eastside Neighbours

November 28, 2013

Om Tuesday evening I was privileged to meet with and talk to the Board of the Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood Council.

They are working their way through problems with the DTES Community Plan known as LAP. I was happy to share whatever insights we have gained here in Grandview-Woodland, and also to explain the purposes of the Coalition of Vancouver Neighbourhoods.

I was mighty impressed with the ability of these folks, many of whom live in the most difficult circumstances, to focus on the betterment of their communities. They were kind and generous and genuinely welcoming.

Now, they have published a whole bunch of images and movies from the meeting, including this one:


Good folks, and I wish them well. I hope to stay in touch and help them as much as I can.
