BC: Ban all evictions during COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic

To: Hon. John Horgan, Premier of British Columbia, Hon. Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing

Whereas:

  1. British Columbia has declared a state of emergency in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as the number of cases and the death toll continue to climb
  2. Many businesses in cities and town across BC have been shutdown leading to lay offs for workers and drying up of revenue for small business operators
  3. Many British Columbians, especially in the Lower Mainland, are facing renovictions and demovictions as developers tear down affordable rentals to build luxury units
  4. The disconnect between incomes and house prices had made housing unaffordable to the vast majority of local taxpayers in BC’s larger municipalities even before the COVID-19 outbreak
  5. Tenants being evicted are facing great hardship finding new places to live because potential landlords are unwilling to conduct viewings due to health risks involved

Therefore: We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of British Columbia to immediately declare a moratorium on evictions until further notice.

3. Many British Columbians, especially in the Lower Mainland, are facing renovictions and demovictions as developers tear down affordable rentals to build luxury units

4. The disconnect between incomes and house prices had made housing unaffordable to the vast majority of local taxpayers in BC’s larger municipalities even before the COVID-19 outbreak

5. Tenants being evicted are facing great hardship finding new places to live as potential landlords are unwilling to conduct viewings due to health risks involved

Therefore:

We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of British Columbia to immediately declare a moratorium on evictions until further notice.
