Jenny Tan is on a mission to figure out how to keep living in Metro Vancouver. After years of increases in housing costs, she’s not sure if she can afford to stay in the region she calls home. From Jenny’s trailer home on the west side of Vancouver, she speaks with experts on topics like money laundering, speculation, and zoning to answer the big question: should she stay or should she go? Should I Stay or Should I Go is produced in partnership with Urbanarium (https://urbanarium.org).

The answer might surprise you. Sonja Trauss is the president of YIMBY Law in California, a non-profit that sues cities for not obeying their own housing laws. She explains why all across North America and not just in Vancouver, it’s so hard to build the homes we need.
