BC Housing accused of bailing out condo development

Housing activists in Vancouver’s downtown eastside say the province loaned a condo developer $3.7 million at an interest rate lower than the one they offer to to non-profit agencies. Ivan Drury is an organizer with the Downtown Eastside Not For Developers Coalition. He speaks with Redeye host Peter Driftmier.
