George Affleck was first elected to Vancouver City Council in 2011 as a member of the NPA. Now in his second term, George looks forward to continuing his commitment to stand up for the interests of Vancouver residents, taxpayers, and businesses.

In his first term on Council, George pushed for budget transparency and fiscal restraint at City Hall. He successfully introduced numerous motions, including:

  • The expansion of craft beer and spirits tasting rooms.
  • Improving media access to city hall staff.
  • Securing the precarious future of leasehold property on South False Creek.
  • The creation of a permanent home for the city’s Dragon Boats.

So far in his second term, George successfully introduced a motion to investigate the creation of an ombudsperson’s office, along with a lobbyist registry, that are intended to make city hall more accountable to the people of Vancouver.

Before entering civic politics, George chaired the False Creek Elementary School Parent Advisory Committee, the Vancouver International Comedy Festival and the Cooperative Auto Network (now Modo)  and served as a director of the Vancouver International Children’s Festival. A local entrepreneur, George  founded and remains President of Vancouver-based marketing firm Curve Communications. He is a published author and former CBC journalist. He lives with his partner, Amanda, and his three children in the city’s Downtown South.
