Vancouver East is one of the most diverse and vibrant ridings in Canada, and it has long been my believe that it is right here that the pulse of social justice beats the hardest. The progressive values of Vancouver East attract people of diverse ethnicities and talents. Van East is the proud home of a wide array of arts and culture organizations, frontline non-profits, diverse culinary establishments, small and independent businesses, exciting tech start ups… the list goes on. Attending community events in this incredible riding always inspires me to work harder to amply the voices of Van East in Parliament and beyond. I look forward to meeting you at your next event!
Powell Street Festival is back! The annual Japanese Canadian street festival at Oppenheimer Park is one of my favourite festivals that reflects the beautiful culture and vibrant community spirit of Japanese Canadians. Don’t miss this massive 2 days (July 30 and 31) festival with live performances, a children’s tent, exquisite merchandises, delicious food and tons of fun.
Kat Norris was a pillar of beauty, grace and strength. She shared so much wisdom and knowledge, providing guidance and support to countless people in our community. I am so lucky to have known her, to witness her teachings, to learn from her and to fight along side her. She will be sorely missed but her teachings will live on. Love and strength to the family during this difficult time.
