( NEW) AC­TIVIST

Sub­ur­ban Cham­pion

Ivan Drury has done what not ev­ery so­cial ac­tivist is will­ing to do—left Van­cou­ver to protest hous­ing and home­less­ness in the sub­urbs. Drury, a col­lege his­tory teacher who de­scribes him­self as aformer an­ar­chist and now aMarx­ist-Lenin­ist, made head­lines this year ‰ght­ing the clo­sure of ahome­less camp in Maple Ridge and bring­ing at­ten­tion to the de­struc­tion of hun­dreds of cheap apart­ments in Burn­aby. Politi­cians dread him and his un­com­pro­mis­ing ap­proach, but he un­doubt­edly makes an im­pact.
