Its been way too long since I posted here, but HUZZAH!
Read this article:
A victory for the homeless in Victoria, although it would seem the city will enforce that the tents be down between 7 am and 9 pm. Still, a victory.
I've slept in tent cities before and there is the constant harrassment from police, as well as the public's attitude to deal with. With the current economic crisis homelessness is on the rise. Whole families sleeping in motels, cars or even outdoors. Foreclosures on houses and evictions from apartments. Perhaps this will draw closer attention to this issue. If not that, then maybe the growing tent cities in our parks will.
