Tenants of Harbour City Homes on Brunswick Street don’t know that their landlord is up to. Last summer the not-for-profit was forced to sell nine buildings and 34 affordable housing units were lost to the North End. Are things going better now? Having a seat on the Board of Directors would answer such questions, tenants suggest. Right now the company isn’t talking.
Tireless activist Lynn Jones talks about racism in Nova Scotia, her times in the union and the CLC, the 122 day occupation of the employment centre on Gottingen Street, and much more.
North End condos are standing empty. These same condos are pushing long time residents out of their neighborhood. Acorn Nova Scotia says, why not rent them out for a rent people can afford?
How racist planning shaped the development of the north end and how the influence of the development industry over city is preventing meaningful action to reduce gentrification in the neighborhood.
Just a very nice tribute by Melinda Daye to her father, the legendary Elmore “Buddy” Daye.
