Burnaby ACORN and allies rally against demovictions

ACORN members, with the support of the BCGEU and Vancouver Tenants Union, rallied against demovictions on Tuesday night at the public hearing at Burnaby City Hall. Many members sat in front of council and had their voices heard, publicly stating that they are opposed to all 3 of proposed rezoning/demoviction applications put forward by Mayor Corrigan and the BCA. BC ACORN is not impressed with the escalation of demoviction applications, and we won't stop fighting until our call for a moratorium is answered!
