Nearly $1.5-billion in public spending since 2000 and little to show for it that's the story of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.
The Globe is pleased to introduce four experts who will lay out fresh solutions for the neighbourhood. Each will join us online to take your questions and participate in a live panel discussion March 24 at the University of British Columbia.
The forum will be hosted at 7 p.m. (10 p.m. ET) at UBC's Robson Square campus by The Globe, in partnership with CTV and the university.
For tickets, call toll-free 1-866-545-0016
Update (March 6, 2009): Tickets are now SOLD OUT
Margo Fryer is the founding director of the UBC Learning Exchange, a storefront education program based in the Downtown Eastside. The exchange sees volunteer UBC students and faculty teach everything from basic computer skills to English-as-a-second language classes.
