“The Woodward’s re-development will be a bellwether for the Downtown Eastside.” This letter, written to Premier Harcourt by Tom Durning on behalf of the Tenants’ Rights Action Coalition, starts out sweetly by commending the government on committing to 973 new units of non-profit housing, before drawing a dagger. The letter warns of the gentrification that could result from a redevelopment of Woodward’s that doesn’t prioritize the needs of the neighbourhood.
