【明報專訊】華埠喜士定東街(E. Hastings St.)夾歌雅街(Gore Ave.)西南角的開發規劃去年揭盅，溫市府「發展許可委員會」(Development Permit Board)將於下周一(25日)開會審批，一批關注華埠發展的民眾將於當天前往溫市政府表達反對項目的心聲。
此一開發項目位於喜士定東街288號，為一棟12層高的大廈，位於當地的數間華人商店去年9月接到搬遷通知，卡麗基社區行動計劃(Carnegie Community Action Project)旗下「唐人街關注組」的梁偉安表示，這些商店的搬遷對當地生活機能有重大的影響。

A new apartment complex planned for the intersection of East Hastings and Gore streets is attracting negative attention from housing advocates despite the project including a major component of social housing.
The 12-storey building proposed for 288 East Hastings heads to the development-permit board for final approval on Monday (January 25).
In addition to 68 units renting at the market rate, the proposal includes 34 units to rent at the welfare rate of $375 a month plus another 70 units nonmarket rental. Nevertheless, the Carnegie Community Action Project (CCAP) has planned a demonstration to take place at City Hall to coincide with the permit-board meeting.
“We want 100% social housing at welfare rate with shops for the low-income and Chinese community!” reads a CCAP poster that’s been distributed online and throughout the neighbourhood.
