Homeless Camp Under Christmas Sequoia Tree,  Victoria City Hall

PEJ News - Kristen Woodruff -
Fond, fond greetings: We are still with tents under the tree in Centennial Square.  It appears that the City has no authority to do anything about it, and knows it; they have said in the paper that they will issue tickets, but this is not happening.  The bylaw enforcement policy is, indeed, of no force and effect and the Crown knows this and so the City cannot enforce the 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. ban on tents.  Our tent was up all day yesterday; there are currently three tents up in Centennial Square.  Constable Jamie Pearse of the Victoria Police Department is roaming around but he has no authorization to do anything, which is causing him a degree of frustration.


THE BIG ONE: Tents allowed all the time; latest message from Centennial Square homeless camper Kristen Woodruff, under giant Christmas Sequoia tree near Victoria City Hall
