  1. Thank you Rose Point for your ongoing support of the OccupyVancouver movement. Your calm presence is appreciated by myself. I have gone to the tent-city on several occasions and even stayed in my friends tent with his dog one night. The issue of homelessness is on the agenda of our politicians and I trust that there will be ongoing demonstrations with respect to that issue. Affordable rental housing is such an important topic in the City of Vancouver, and also across Canada, due to the fact that we have not had a National Housing or even a Provincial Housing plan. So, thank you for your wisdom of years.
