Times Colonist editor responds to City’s plan to tackle camping in parks.
About 10 per cent of the people who throw up tents are believed to be travellers taking advantage of the court’s so-called “Adams decision” to find a cheap place to stay. The rest, however, are homeless, the people who are at the sharp end of a problem that this city has struggled with for decades. Using police officers as concierges in an outdoor hotel is not a solution to that problem.
