    The candidate lists are finalized and Vancouver voters once again have over a hundred names to choose from. Stewart Prest (@StewartPrest) calls in to discuss the implications for voters and whether this makes electoral reform a necessity.

    Then we get into some of the latest policy announcements, what the new council will have to do with and threats against Port Coquitlam’s mayor.

    The final nominations are in and Vancouver is about  to do its draw for the random ballot order. But some candidates, notably the entire NPA, wants to include non-Latin characters in their names.

    Women Transforming Cities released a report card where most candidates seemingly endorse everything, even things they previously voted against–with a few notable exceptions.

    The Vancouver Greens expel a candidate who sold their data to Progress Vancouver. And the NPA has a candidate who tells landlords to poop in their tenant’s toilets.

    Pitt Meadows, Port Coquitlam and Burnaby won’t be having elections for Mayor. Read what Ian had to say to the Burnaby Beacon about that.

    The NPA are for public safety while OneCity is for mental health response teams and ending homelessness.

    Forward Together has the start of a housing plan, which is not as comprehensive as those we’ve previously discussed.

    Forward is also facing criticism for an alleged fundraiser list. Frances Bula, as always, has more.

    ABC and COPE released their donor lists.

    Leger found voters in Vancouver and Surrey are mad as hell but those in Burnaby and Coquitlam are quite happy.

    And OneCity has thoughts about School Board.

    Mario Canseco (@mario_canseco) joins us to talk about the latest poll from Research CO.

    OneCity has started releasing its You Belong in Vancouver platform with planks on housing and community power. See also Dan Fumano’s coverage. Progress Vancouver also dropped their housing plan. We compare and contrast.

    ABC wants cops to wear body cams, something not strongly supported by the evidence.

    The NPA names its new mayoral contestant, former Vancouver 1st candidate Fred Harding, only to lose park board candidates Tricia Barker & Kumi Kimura to TEAM.

    ABC announces a transparency policy.

    Vancouver is appealing its defeated SRO vacancy control bylaw and the courts, and the province, basically allowed Coquitlam  to get away with breaking the law.

    And familiar names are running in Coquitlam, Richmond, Langley and Maple Ridge. Which leads to a Vancouveratta about a former little ferry.
