In the last installment of our 6th Annual Speaker Series we invite you to "The War on Blight: Postwar planning in the city" with John Atkin. Join us for this riveting talk as we finish the Vancouver Noir series!
There’s a knock at the door, upon opening there is a nice young couple with clipboard and cameras asking to interview you about your neighbourhood and improvements you’d like to see the city make. You invite them in.
That nice young couple are engaged in a fake survey developed by the City of Vancouver to get inside your house to assess its condition and value for expropriation. Welcome to the dubious world of planning in the age of noir.
