ResearchCo’s latest survey confirmed that two-thirds of Vancouverites consider housing to be the most important issue facing the city but that doesn’t mean it’s the only issue.
In particular, the concerns of equity-seeking groups are often overlooked in these discussions. And as a podcast hosted by three white dudes, we make a conscious effort wherever we can to help amplify others’ voices.
Toward that end, we were approached a couple weeks ago to help spread the word about a survey developed by Megan Lau in collaboration with many others, to see where candidates for Vancouver mayor and council stand on issues that affect indigenous peoples, people of colour, people living with disabilities, women and the LGBTQAI2+ community.
Candidates: We encourage you to take this survey.
We’ll release the results here closer to the election and we’ll bring Megan on the podcast to talk us through her findings. The more of you who answer, the more we’ll have to talk about.
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to fill it out.
