Worse Than Prison: How Vancouver Detains Non-Citizens

The shared downtown VPL building complex on Georgia Street is filled with shelves of books, laughing kids and an array of community programs. The complex is also home to a government tower, housing a prison-like detention facility; temporarily holding non-citizens en-route to holding cells underneath YVR airport or provincial jails. In Canada it is legal to detain non-citizens—including children—without formal trial or criminal charges. In this Orwellian exposé, you’ll hear lawyers and activists explore Vancouver’s detainment facilities in post-9/11 Vancouver. By Areeka Riaz

Worse Than Prison: How Vancouver Detains Non-Citizens

The Young and the Resistant

From the BBQ meat fights in the 1970s to the 105 Keefer Street fight today, youth have always been resisting legislated and social discrimination in Vancouver's Chinatown. The Young and The Resistant follows the stories of past and present youth organizers; Paul Yee, Ramona Mar, Yulanda Lui, and Amanda Wan. Though Chinatown has changed, there is one thing that connects these resistant youth across time. This doc was made possible by the Quan Lee Excellence Fund for Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies. By Rachel Lau
