Mark Marissen is a political strategist who worked on former B.C. premier Christy Clark’s campaigns as a volunteer. He’s running for mayor.
Marissen said he’s been visiting SROs in Vancouver and met with residents of a tent city that was located in Strathcona Park in 2020 and 2021.
“Many people that are living in these tents feel safer than in these SROs that we still allow to exist,” Marissen said. “We’ve got to do something pretty significant about that.”
