Vancouver needs people to want to stay here but over the last 12 years three municipal governments have struggled to bring results to make our Vancouver affordable.
The situation is so serious that there are 12,561 fewer under-18s in Vancouver than there were in 2010.

Morgane speaks about her campaign on “Each For All” with Rubin Puga [Note: This is a re-post of an update from my 2018 Vancouver School Trustee campaign] Too many parents are telling me their child is not getting the education they deserve.

A man has been wandering the streets of Vancouver since 6 October distributing flyers. There’s no place for what he is writing and no excuse for him to be putting such homophobic and transphobic rants to paper and imposing them on innocent victims.

Morgane Oger running for Vancouver Board of Education Trustee
Education and human rights advocate Morgane Oger submitted her Nomination papers for Trustee in the 2018 Vancouver School Board election.
