Your Revolution 2.0 event sounds intriguing, and could not come at a better time. We have to engage a HUGE number of people to reclaim Vancouver to protect itself against globalism, and in particular the commodification of housing as a speculative sport of off-shore millionaires. This is an election year, but we need to organize more than just for that moment in time.
We all need a cheap and decent place to live, but Vancouver is being hollowed out by phantom condo owners and shoddily-built, concrete phallic symbols of American-style excess.
Check out this short video of a Chinese city that has striking similarities to parts of Vancouver: http://www.creditwritedowns.com/2011/04/chinas-property-market-and-ghost-cities.html
I am going to feature this event, and specifically invite Alvin Singh, the Executive Director of COPE.

dear sobey - yes, let's make sure to connect next time we see each other in real time...  i hope that this permaculture design course is just the beginning and we can offer more courses as time goes on.  i'm also trying to figure out how to offer scholarships / pre-fundraise to subsidize the course fee.  we need more permies out there and more permie trainers, that is for sure!  it is possible to pay for this course incrementally over time, and it runs over the course of 7 months...
