Tenants' Rights in BC because of 70's Tenants' Movement

Tenant's movement

According to an article in The Mainlander, most of the few remaining rights and affordable housing that tenants have in British Columbia were earned by working class activists and renters in the 1970s. The article, written in 1981 by former housing activist and COPE City Councilor Bruce Yorke, documents the housing struggles that won tangible victories in the late ’60s and ’70s, while hinting at how new ground can be won today.
