At MVA's Municipal Election Accountability Assembly on October 19, 2014, MVA's member organizations received commitments from local politicians, including Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, on a civic agenda. At the Federal Election Assembly MVA member organizations will be asking candidates in the Vancouver Granville riding to support these initiatives at the federal level.

Date: Wednesday, September 30
Time: 7PM to 9PM
Location: Langara College, 100 W 49th Ave, Lecture Hall A130, Vancouver
