OPB News and EarthFix are holding Coffee Shop “Office Hours” in downtown Vancouver to discuss stories that impact the local community. In attendance will be OPB reporter April Baer, EarthFix community engagement manager Toni Tabora-Roberts and Amanda Peacher, OPB’s public insight journalist.

OPB News and EarthFix would like to know what stories they should be covering in the local area. What news from the Vancouver community should they know about? They are specifically interested in stories about government and the economy, with questions such as:

  • Is your experience that the economy is improving?
  • Is local government serving you?
  • Do you have a green job?

For community members who cannot attend, but would like to share story ideas or other newsworthy experience, email with your thoughts or join OPB’s Public Insight Network, which is always looking for ways to better cover what’s going on in local communities.
