The Coalition of Progressive Electors has released its 2014 election platform and new Executive Board after a long Annual General Meeting yesterday.
In a statement, COPE says Tim Louis and Heather Gies have been elected Co-Chairs of the board.
Representatives from five Equity caucuses – including Aboriginal, Disabled and Transgender caucuses – have been elected to voting positions.
COPE’s election platform includes a Housing Authority aimed at building “real, affordable social housing” funded partly a Luxury Housing Tax, as well as a proposal for a Universal Transit Pass for all Vancouver residents.
The statement adds COPE plans to run a mayoral candidate as well as candidates for City Council, and the School and Park Boards.
