East Vancouver portrait

Judy Hanazawa poses for my portrait series on BC voting rights history.

When Judy was born British Columbia she didn’t have the right to vote because she was Japanese-Canadian.  Japanese-Canadians and Indigenous people couldn’t vote in BC until 1949.  Mennonites and Hutterites until 1948.  Chinese-Canadians and South Asian-Canadians until 1947.  Please don’t take your right to vote for granted.  Get to the BC polls on Saturday October 24, 2020.


Dressew (337 W. Hastings St.) in Gastown is closed because of the pandemic, but today they’ve launched their online store, with in-store pick up between 12pm-3pm.  Atex Fabrics (330 W.

They have fabrics and notions such as elastics if you are looking to make some cloth face masks.  Visit their website for more information.
