V.I.A. Podcast Ep 9 – MLA Sam Sullivan


Here’s Episode 9 of the Vancouver Is Awesome podcast!

This week’s guest is Sam Sullivan, the former Vancouver mayor and current MLA representing Vancouver False Creek in the legislature. Sam talks about his recent run for the B.C. Liberal leadership and why he continued on with it despite knowing he had a “0.01%” chance of winning. He also shares insight on the lost Chinook Wawa language of B.C., and his Public Salon speaker series which we’re a longtime sponsor of.
