Vivienne was quoted this week in the Globe and Mail about real estate market in Vancouver and the effect the empty condos has on the housing stock.

“…lawyer Vivienne Stewart, who frequently represents people trying to get permission to rent out their condos, said councils with the power to do so are typically moving to more rental controls over time.

She said judges typically side with councils, unless they’ve made some kind of procedural error, because the courts don’t want to interfere with democratic processes in strata buildings.”
