Because it’s far more environmentally sound to reuse than demolish.

I live in the U.K.; but the situation in Vancouver is typical of a situation found widely, probably worldwide. Fine buildings are demolished, only to be replaced by characterless, depressing new constructions. In addition, demolition is environmentally unfriendly.

I oppose the citys proposed SEcured rental policy which will lead to irreversible losses to Vancouver's already vanishing character and heritage homes. This city needs to start doing what is needed to retain the character of the city, architecture, and streetscapes.

Why does this have to be something that needs a petition. Heritage is important!

I am against these city-wide rezonings because they are a quick & dirty way to make changes to the city without having to take the trouble to meaningfully consult with neighbourhoods. They are simply a cheap but inadequate substitute for proper planning. What is worse, the proponents are trying to slide this in during a pandemic so that people can't organize themselves and push back. The city will be the worse for it if they are successful in forcing through these rezonings.

The wholesale demolition of character homes is destructive and wasteful. The most affordable home is the one already . built.

Maintaining pre 1940s homes retains the character and history of neighbourhoods. They are well built houses. They should not be destroyed.
