From CiTR's News Collective, this is season two of Seeking Office—At-Large. Bringing you innovative storytelling from Metro Vancouver.

1805 Larch Street

From CiTR's News Collective, this is season two of Seeking Office—At-Large. Bringing you innovative storytelling from Metro Vancouver. In Kitsilano, residents are fiercely protective of neighborhood character. Many say a five-storey apartment set to be built at 1805 Larch Street threatens that character.

CiTR's News Collective speaks with people for and against this project outside a town hall at the Kitsilano Neighborhood House on April 10th.
