Residents of Vancouver’s Strathcona Neighbourhood took to the streets Monday morning to say they feel betrayed by a proposal to keep a high-traffic street through their community.

Vancouver city council is slated to vote Tuesday on a staff report that will finalize what road feeds the bulk of area traffic into the city’s core when the viaducts are removed and the new St. Paul’s Hospital is built.
