Housing an issue in provincial by-elections

Two Lower Mainland ridings, Vancouver-Burrard and Vancouver-Fariview, are up for a by-election this week after their ridings were vacated by MLAs running in other elections. If you live in either of these ridings you can vote on Wednesday, October 29, 2008. The economy and housing are the two major issues up for debate in this by-election. The West End advocacay group, Renters at Risk has been rallying for changes to the Residential Tenancy Act and protection for tenants.
