Vancouver’s thriving downtown has been the envy of many North American cities but what happens when all the hustle and bustle stops… for two months!?! Now couple that with the demise of the international tourist, the collapse of the cruise ship industry, and the office tower crowd working from home and…Vancouver, we have a problem! President & CEO of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association Charles Gauthier sits down with Adam & Matt to discuss how we got here, the most pressing pain points facing local businesses, and the biggest challenges moving forward for downtown and the city to rebound. It’s not all doom and gloom but, as Vancouver cautiously reopens, the city you call home definitely needs you. Time to step up!
