Built in the 1950s, the Little Mountain social housing complex was a key public asset in Vancouver. 13 years ago, the BC Liberals sold the housing to a private developer, Holborn Properties, in a deal shrouded in secrecy. Hundreds of people were displaced and more than 200 family homes were demolished. The residents were promised a quick return to new and modern homes but today, most of the social housing units remain un-built and the land sits virtually vacant. Community advocate David Chudnovsky joins us to talk about a recent legal victory in the fight to restore Little Mountain.
