Should development provide affordable housing for citizens or luxury condos for the super-rich? That was the key question in the Vancouver mayoral campaign of 1986, a campaign that pitched veteran socialist firebrand Harry Rankin against a young rightwinger named Gordon Campbell. We know how it turned out, but this warts-and-all portrait of Rankin (culled from a never-finished documentary from the time) offers plenty of food for thought about politics then and now.
