Vancouver – City Councillor David Cadman joined COPE and Vision Vancouver candidates today to announce his endorsement of the entire COPE and Vision Vancouver slate.

“We have done a lot of good work over the past three years at City Council, at the School board and at the Park Board. This work includes great strides taken towards green initiatives and making Vancouver the greenest city in the world. It includes measures to combat homelessness. It includes expanding active transportation infrastructure,” said Cadman.

“I want to see that good work continue with Mayor Gregor Robertson and a Vision Vancouver and COPE team. That is why I am announcing my endorsement for the entire COPE and Vision Vancouver slate.”

COPE and Vision Vancouver are running on a joint slate for all three boards, with Gregor Robertson as their Mayoral Candidate.

Ellen Woodsworth, who has served alongside Cadman on City Council for two terms, said “coming from someone who has dedicated so much of their lives to creating positive change in Vancouver and around the world, this endorsement is a great acknowledgement of the social, environmental and economic progress we can make in Vancouver, with a COPE-Vision Vancouver team.”

“We look forward to continuing addressing the pressing issues facing Vancouver, over the next three years, with a Vision COPE team, on Council, School and Park Board,” added Vision Vancouver candidate, Andrea Reimer.

“If an NPA council is brought into power, it will put into question so many of the great things that we have accomplished. If Vancouver wants to remain a city that values all of its citizens, if Vancouver wants to keep environmental protection and sustainability as a priority, if Vancouver wants to keep its schools open to better suit the needs of communities, we need to elect the entire COPE Vision team,” added Cadman.

David Cadman is finishing his third term on City Council and has been a social and environmental activist for over 30 years. He was the President of the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC), the Chairperson of the British Columbia and Canadian Environmental Networks and has served at both the national and international levels of the United Nations Association. He has also served on numerous municipal bodies including the International Association of Local Governments for Sustainability as the International President the International Association of Peace Messenger Cities, as an Executive Board Member.
