Gregor Robertson over-promised and under-delivered. When he threw his hat in the ring for the Vancouver mayoralty in 2008, he said he was going to end street homelessness by 2015 and make city hall open and accountable.
Instead, he imposed bike lanes across the city, helped party donors build luxury towers to sell offshore, and made Vancouver city hall one of the most secretive governments in Canada.
Robertson revealed Jan. 10 that he won’t run again for the mayoralty, after leading Vision Vancouver to three city council majorities. On this special edition of theBreaker.news podcast, host Bob Mackin looks at Robertson’s empty legacy, through Robertson’s own words.
