Maple Ridge plan for SCAN

A well attended meeting this evening by local homeowners, business owners, strata managers, property owners, politicians and activists got a first hand look at the serious problems at the core of the Maple Ridge downtown.

Tyler Ducharme gave a detailed presentation on how SCAN came about, which provinces have adopted SCAN and why British Columbia should follow suit.

Marc Dalton and Michael Sather were clearly moved by what they heard. There is the slim chance that for once the NDP and Liberals have found an issue on which they can can agree. A solution to ending the situations that arise when landlords such as Jagdev Athwal attempt either intentionally or through neglect to destroy vulnerable communities such as Haney.

Watch this space.
