TEAM comes to the Paradise Makers

Former city planner Ray Spaxman, when asked to discuss “Vancouverism”, had this to say in a recent Courier article:

“I see Vancouverism not as an individual building or style, but as a work by a group of people in the 1970s, [at] a moment in time when the community elected a city council whose mission it was to improve the quality of life in our city. I refer to TEAM, or The Electors Action Movement, led by Art Phillips.”

Spaxman is quite right.  And the SFU City Program will be exploring that theme in the first “Paradise Makers” session on Friday, September 5 at Harbour Centre. 

We’re bringing back politicians from City Councils past – Aldermen May Brown and Marguerite Ford, and Mayor Jack Volrich – to share their perspectives not only on the times when they were in office but the challenges facing the city and region today.
