This city is for those who have a job and money. If you dont have that you will be harrassed to no end by those who sit above the less fortunate on the ladder of social status.
But that's the thing, these folks are not being harassed, and from what I've learned by speaking to several over the years is they have regular jobs. What's happening here is they've found a loophole in the system and are taking advantage of it.
I disagree that all of these individuals are disenfranchised or societal outcasts. They all have boats (!) and are living literally on the doorstep of downtown Victoria. If they were societal recluses they would be out on the far reaches of Sprout Lake.
