Summary: 
This is a critique of the Woodward's Steering Committee's report of the public consultation on Woodward's redevelopment by the Woodwards Social Housing Coalition (WSHC). It goes through the report section by section, addressing discrepancies and absences, in order to accurately inform the Vancouver City Council of the desires of the residents of the Downtown Eastside. It also provides two addenda - one, a letter from the WSHC that expresses broader concerns about the workshop and second, an excerpt from a community survey conducted by the WSHC that identifies the Downtown Eastside residents' priorities for the use of the Woodwards building. Overall, it is very critical of the report and the genuineness of the consultation process.
