Is Housing a human right or just another commodity in the Neo Liberal market place

Host Stuart Richardson interviews long time housing advocate/activist Ivan Drury, we speak about the large scale gentrification project going on in the Burnaby Metrotown area where thousands of low income tenants face reno-viction as their affordable homes get bulldozed for high priced condo developments.

How this story is unfolding in big cities all across North American and how investors only see homes as another commodity to flip leaving renters with limited options, many becoming homeless or living in precarious housing arrangements.

We speak about how all levels of government and political stripes have abandoned this community preferring to favor developer interests. How this problem manifests in a Neo-Liberal capitalist market place and how only more radical view of a people first based community must take form.
