Little Mountain – 10 Years Later

Global News report from April 8, 2017 on the community event to commemorate the beginning of the redevelopment of the Little Mountain Housing Project in Vancouver and the displacement of its tenants. I am included in the report.

“The B.C. Liberal government justified this redevelopment saying that it needed to be transformed into a mixed-income integrated community,” former resident Tommy Thomson said Saturday. “This was a very rich community, rich in social capital. The neighbours helped each other out and they tore that apart by relocating all these tenants.”
