Winter Edition – Vol 1- #2 (Jan 2017)
HIP replacement in da Ghetto +Chinesish-town, bike wars in Strathcona
50 years since Vancouver’s Chinatown last faced a potentially fatal threat, two giant freeways, the enclave is again in a possible fight for its life. This time it’s death by 1,000 tiny cuts: new upscale commercial and residential development mostly built, occupied and patronised by whites.
Another big difference is that this time Chinese-Canadian business leaders are not fighting back. It was they, actually, who supported a hardfought 2011 rezoning that allows 15 storey buildings in key areas of Chinatown.
