The Stop Demovictions Burnaby Campaign
In July 2017 Burnaby City Council voted unanimously to pass a new “Downtown” Metrotown Plan that increased allowable building heights throughout the residential Metrotown community in order to demovict thousands of affordable apartments and build luxury high rise condo towers in their place. By the time the NDP-affiliated Council’s redevelopment is done, more than 6,000 people will have been displaced from their home community. Unless we fight back and stop evictions.
The Stop Demovictions Burnaby Campaign is a grassroots community organizing project to stop evictions and mass displacement in the Metrotown area of Burnaby. The campaign is organized by the Alliance Against Displacement, ACORN Burnaby, and Metrotown Residents Association, alongside residents of the Metrotown apartments facing demoviction.
