On March 29th and 30th, members of the Coalition of Progressive Electors will meet to discuss and develop the party’s election platform at its 2014 Policy Conference.

Policies to be discussed include phasing out transit fares by 2030, implementing municipal rent control, building affordable housing through a Vancouver Housing Authority, and adopting a Sanctuary City policy within Vancouver.

”We’ve reached out to renters, immigrants, bus riders, and community groups, to hear about how we can make Vancouver really affordable. I’m really excited with the proposals coming forward,” said COPE Executive Director Sean Antrim.

The policy conference will take place at the Japanese Hall, at 487 Alexander Street from 10am to 5pm on both March 29th and 30th.
