VDLC Calling on City Council to Support Vote16BC, Hotel Workers

June 17, 2021

The VDLC is highlighting two important motions coming to Vancouver City Council next week. The first is to support the Vote16BC campaign to reduce the voting age to 16. The other is to support hotel workers who are fighting for the right to return to their jobs as the industry reopens post-pandemic. 

UPDATE
