This week, we spoke to Sean Orr, who is running for Vancouver City Council with Vote Socialist, a new organization that commits to restitution for Indigenous nations, promoting safe and affordable housing as a human right, making the rich pay their fair share for public services, and to defunding and disarming the police. We talk about why this new group was launched, how Sean's personal experiences inspired him to run for office, and how he would implement change as a lone Vote Socialist councillor.
