A new party has launched in Vancouver ahead of November’s civic elections.

OneCity says the city has become increasingly unequal and divided.

The party hopes to make Vancouver more affordable and inclusive, says city council candidate RJ Aquino.

“OneCity emerged out of a deep concern that social inequality is growing, current development policies are making the situation worse, and City Hall is not listening.”

Aquino is best known as a former COPE candidate.

The party says Vancouver’s extensive condo development “erodes the affordability, character, and cultural spaces of the city’s diverse neighbourhoods.”

This year’s election is set for November 15.
