Ask David Eby anything at noon today

David Eby is definitely one of the most vocal politicians in Vancouver when it comes to issues around housing.

Have you ever wanted to ask him a question?

Now’s your chance. Eby will be hosting an ‘ask me anything’ thread on reddit today at noon (June 22nd)

His first comment on that thread:

I’m looking forward to it. A bit nervous, I’m expecting challenging questions on this important issue. I’ll do my best to answer, or to find the answers for you. I’m also interested to hear suggestions for policy opportunities and what you think needs to be done to respond to the housing crisis. See you then!

Let us know in the comments below if you spot anything note-worthy.

David Eby AMA June 22nd 12pm on Reddit.

If you live anywhere on the lower mainland you’ve probably noticed that there’s something happening within the real estate market here. Vancouver has become the best place for wealthy foreign investors to park their cash, forcing home prices up (way up), leaving long-time residents in the situation where they can’t afford to live here any longer.

You do understand that Trump is despised and considered a joke by 90%+ of Canadians, right? So why base a campaign on his rhetoric and approach?

@ Tim
I doubt you’re a pollster, so get lost.
Trump rules.

I agree with Tim. Associating the burgeoning movement to address Vancouver’s housing crisis with Trumpian politics is a huge strategic mistake. Anyone who does that I would suspect to be a Rennie troll, or some such as that, even though he might deny it. In any case, it plays into the hands of those who want to pretend that being against unregulated nonresident foreign ownership is being racist.

The site says it has nothing to do with Trump, and the title is the only thing that is reminiscent of his rhetoric.

I doubt you’d feel that way if he ended up in office.
