Vancouver's mayor and new council sworn in: slideshow
Mayor Gregor Robertson and Vancouver's newest city councillors were sworn in at the Creekside Community centre Monday amid promises from Robertson that he would focus resources on housing and homelessness.
"In a city as prosperous as Vancouver, nobody should be forced to sleep outside on our streets," he said.
Robertson said he will strike a task force on housing affordability that will identify ways to increase Vancouver's supply of affordable homes.
The mayor also recommitted his promise to end street homelessness by 2015.
