Blog Entry 227: Roundhouse Co-op shows spirit on Olympic anniversary!

Today’s the 120th anniversary of the first Olympic Games of the Modern age, held back in 1896 in Athens. The highlight event was the marathon, won by hometown hero Spyros Louis. So it’s appropriate that we learn today that Roundhouse Co-op in Vancouver has become the 122nd housing co-op in B.C. to pass a resolution supporting the You Hold the Key Campaign. That brings us to a total of 7,416 households that have Shown Some Resolve! And the Olympic anniversary is fitting because the campaign has been a marathon, but the finish line is in sight. Let’s sprint to the finish line and get that federally-funded, provincially-delivered rent supplement program implemented to protect low-income and other co-op households. So show some Spyros spirit! Send Housing Minister Rich Coleman the message that he has to act now to protect seniors, people with disabilities, lone parent families and others.
