About Jean Swanson

Jean Swanson has been fighting for a better world and a more just city for more than 40 years. For her tireless commitment, Jean was recently named a recipient of the Order of Canada. She feels a bit ambivalent about being recognized this way by the Canadian state, and that’s part of why we love her! You can read more about Jean’s Order of Canada here: http://www.metronews.ca/news/vancouver/2016/07/03/social-housing-crusader-jean-swanson-knighted-by-canada.html


About Jean’s campaign for City Council

Vancouver needs a political revolution. Jean Swanson is the right candidate at just the right time. Her demands for a rent freeze and for taxing the rich to build homes for all are just what we need in this affordability crisis. The campaign to election Jean to City Council needs you to volunteer and donate. The big parties of have big money from developers and corporations. But Jean has People Power behind her!
