October 31st, 2016 --1047 Granville Street in Vancouver.
October 31st, 2016 -- Homeless camp in the 900 block of Denman Street, Vancouver.
February 15th, 2016 -- Today, just after starting on what I like to call my errands, I came across the above, a perfectly good home on West King Edward being demolished so a much larger house can be built for its new owner. Half an hour later while walking from my car to my first appointment I came across another person's home in an alley west of Columbia Street. Soon it too will be demolished but for entirely different reasons.
September 30th, 2014 -- There is an occupation of Oppenheimer Park in Vancouver by homeless people who are protesting of the lack of progress solving the housing crisis in Vancouver. A few blocks away in the park west of the overpass at Main Street and Alexander there is the tent of a homeless person who is not part of the protest. Almost every time I walk or drive by this park, summer, winter, fall, or spring, there is a structure of some kind against the fence and a person living in it. It's very visible so I imagine it doesn't take long for someone to complain and for the city to come by and remove it, temporarily. It's been like this for years.
