CITY COUN­CIL­LOR (#23, 2016)

The Pro­tégé Gre­gor Robert­son, Van­cou­ver’s long­est-serv­ing mayor, is set to seek an un­prece­dented fourth term in 2018. Andrea Reimer—a for­mer Green Party school trustee and, since 2008, Vi­sion Van­cou­ver coun­cil­lor, has been Robert­son’s clos­est ally on coun­cil and was widely seen as his heir ap­par­ent, spear­head­ing many of Vi­sion’s mar­quee ini­tia­tives, in­clud­ing the Green­est City Ac­tion Plan and a com­pre­hen­sive new Down­town East­side neigh­bour­hood plan. With Robert­son go­ing nowhere fast, Reimer de­cided in Oc­to­ber not to run for re-elec­tion—though it’s hard to imag­ine the en­er­getic pol­icy wonk ex­it­ing the civic stage com­pletely.
