Mayor Gregor Robertson got an earful Tuesday night to make good on a pledge he made almost two years ago to have a $90-million social housing project planned for the Downtown Eastside be rented at welfare and pension shelter rates of $375 per month.

Robertson signed the pledge Aug. 2, 2016 after meeting with housing advocates at the Carnegie community centre regarding a 231-unit building proposed for a large city property at 58 West Hastings, directly across the street from Save-On-Meats.
