A new high-end restaurant opened in Vancouver’s poorest neighbourhood at the beginning of February. Since it opened its doors, the sidewalk outside the restaurant has been filled with picketers. They say the Pidgin restaurant opened on a fault-line in the battle against gentrification in the downtown eastside and they want it to close. Two of the picketers, Wendy Pedersen and Tami Starlight, discuss the protest with Redeye host Lorraine Chisholm.
