Pete Fry, Green party of vancouver
Pete Fry hopes to join Adriane Carr as the second Green city councillor, an achievement that would allow the party to make motions without having to negotiate with other councillors.
Fry has been active in advocating for community issues in Strathcona and is the son of Hedy Fry, a longtime Liberal member of Parliament. He ran unsuccessfully for council in 2014. the Greens say they want to focus on policies the city can do on its own, without asking for help from senior levels of government. that includes making it easier to bring currently illegal basement suites up to code; a one-year moratorium on the demolition of purpose-built rentals; creating a renters’ office at the city; and changing the currently nebulous definition of “affordable housing” to reflect local incomes.
