Mike Hurley is next in the series, set to sit down with the NOW on Tuesday at 3 p.m. He will be followed by fellow independent Helen H. S. Chang at 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Corrigan gave his explanation for why Burnaby lost hundreds of rental units while other Metro Vancouver municipalities gained thousands.
