A proudly multicultural city, Vancouver doesn't seem like a city with a racism problem. But as the feature article in Megaphone #137 uncovers, racial tensions are simmering below the surface in the Lower Mainland. From a higher than average incidence of hate crimes, to rudeness and anonymous rants, we take a look at what it's like to feel like an outsider in Vancouver.
Also in this issue: Housing activists in the Downtown Eastside accuse York Rooms owner of evicting low-income people for wealthier tenants; anti-gentrification pickets are becoming violent; development monopolies, not lack of supply, drive up Vancouver housing costs; Megaphone vendor Sid Bristow remembers his father, who he met late, but left a big impression; and much more!
