MEENA WONG 王璐 for MAYOR
Meena Wong is running for Mayor to build a Vancouver everyone can afford.
Meena will introduce a Duty on Vacant Properties to fund affordable and social housing. She’ll reduce the cost-of-living for working people by giving a $30/month U-Pass for all Vancouver residents who want it. She’ll give Vancouver a raise by fighting for a $15/hour Local Minimum Wage.
Born in Beijing, Meena moved to Hong Kong during the Cultural Revolution, then to Canada for university. In Toronto she worked for the Toronto Star and, from 1999 to 2002, as assistant to then-City Councillor Olivia Chow, now running for Mayor of Toronto. Meena has been a COPE activist since 2005. She also ran for the federal NDP in Vancouver South in 2011. Meena is currently a mental health support worker for Vancouver Coastal Health.
Meena Wong believes that to create Vancouver everyone can afford, we have to reduce the cost-of-living and give Vancouver a raise now.
