Homeless need respite from wildfire smoke, says Victoria councillor

Councillor pushes for year-round emergency shelter access

respite from the smoke. or the cold. or tent intruders. or goblins can be found in living like 99.8% of us do. just copy our behaviour.

Simple. Just go back to whatever smoke-free communities they were living in before migrating to the CoV.

Hilarity on Twitter as Adam Stirling exposes the mysterious Jamaican woman who has been cyberstalking him as in fact being an alias of the assault guy who runs the Beacon Hill Park tent city.

To make it better, the fake account had just 2 followers, one of which was the official Together Victoria account.

Fun times.

In the thread someone posted this. If there's a link to the same that's pretty concerning especially if they're offering anger management courses.

 

Police have arrested a man and will be laying charges against him after he allegedly stabbed a man so severely that the victim's arm was almost severed early Sunday morning.

Wow... wasn’t he under arrest here? I guess he went to Edmonton to escape, but he can’t escape himself. Sadly someone paid the price for it...
Hey, I thought the homeless didn’t move around?

In order to help speed up the rate at which people are killing themselves due to drug overdoses, the BC Government has decided that the solution is to make it easier for people to get free drugs. We know that hardcore addicts sell their free drugs to newbies and use the money to buy harder drugs.

Saw a report that the previously mentioned leaky camper was towed today with bylaw and police present. Apparently no insurance as well.

But that means he moved here from Edmonton.  I thought the PIT survey said all homeless people are from Victoria originally :confused:

Millions of people all over the world still aren't medicating regularly. Governments and big corporations are in full agreement that it's a major issue.

986 pages, 19,713 posts in this thread. I’ve heard rumours that when it reaches 1,000 pages VV shuts down in a Y2K type of collapse - but for real. We need to hurry and solve homelessness to avert this tragedy - quick, we have less than 14 pages to go!

Cook street village is getting to know it’s new neighbours...
Man threatened while walking his dog...

https://vancouverisl...-park-1.5108398

Notice the mention of a man who was placed at the Howard Johnson and who left because it was too out of control. I wonder where he is now... in a tent in BHP perhaps?

I really wonder how many of the hotel rooms we are paying for are actually utilized. Is there a way to FOI this?

Sorry Zoomer.. just adding to the long list...

I made the limit 3,000 pages before we have to solve it.

The operators are private companies and NPOs and will not respond to any requests and are not covered by FOI.

WoW... considering that they operate mainly from government funds, this is quite a loophole...I think this is likely a big source of the problem...

Clearly I'm a little slow getting out of the gate here. I wasn't tapping in to what this was all about. Holy hell! How freaking bizarre!

So Shea Smith posed as a black woman on Twitter to stalk Sterling. As if that wasn't messed up enough...this dude has like 3 pages/50 entries on the CSO. 

Not just Together Victoria following the troll, but also the documentary maker? Krista Loughton? 

The account has gone poof. 

I don't think we're in Kansas anymore Toto.

Good question. Or what the criteria was in designating them. . 

I had spoken to someone awhile back who said a family member of theirs has a 

room at one of the hotels, but spends weeks still at BHP. Doesn't use the room

The alleged management of the recently acquired housing units would be laughable if it wasn't my tax dollars funding it.
