Traffic and affordable housing continue to be hot topics on the North Shore. In the next few days two different events will focus on these issues.

This Saturday Bowen Ma, the NDP candidate for North Vancouver Lonsdale, is holding a town hall on traffic and transportation issues at the John Braithwaite Community Centre from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. For more details and how to register go here:

Then on March 2nd from 6:00 to 9:00 pm several groups are sponsoring a forum on the cost of housing with Paul Kershaw, the founder of Generation Squeeze, at the Fraternal Order of Eagles, 170 W. 3rd.

If you find this article interesting, please use the buttons at the end of the article to share it with your neighbours on social media.

Are you looking for some really interesting information about life on the North Shore? Look no further. The United Way of the Lower Mainland has a presentation to DNV council next Monday full of interesting facts and figures.

Interested in population growth, immigration and the economy? How about family incomes, unemployment nd social assitance rates? It’s all there and you can find it at the following URL:

Also included is information on the NV voter turnout and in that regard we fare very badly – five percent lower than the city and a discouraging 14% lower than the City of Vancouver.

Why is it so few people in the DNV bother to vote? It’s an issue worth discussing.
