Today, @fionaeyork of @CCAPdtes has emailed a press release detailing awful SRO "#housing" @BCHousing has offered 1 of the #homeless campers in #StrathconaPark. Shameful! "I will not stay here. I will sleep in my tent until I find something better.” #Vancouver #AfrordableHousing

Replying to @CCAPdtes
Gov'ts across N. Am. started securing hotel rooms to house homeless weeks ago. Modelling by University College London found more cost-effective than treating individuals in hospital. Why wait until virus spreads thru DTES? straight.com/news/jean-swans…
