$100 reward for missing community plaque

After a three-year negotiation with City Hall Carnegie Community Action Project and the Vancouver District Labour Council finally got PLAQUE_olaf solheim plaque_COLORtwelve historic plaques put up around the East Side commemorating our histories of community resistance. The historic plaques were launched with a news conference in March and city engineers put them all up on poles. But…

One plaque, commemorating the death of Olaf Solheim and the struggle against the Expo ‘86 SRO hotel displacement, went missing within the first few hours of it going up outside the Patricia Hotel. The owner of the Patricia is the same person who evicted Olaf in 1986. The City is so far refusing to pay for a replacement so CCAP is posting a reward for the plaque’s recovery.
