Vancouver Tent City protest, Feb. 26, 2011
Activists attempt to erect a tent city at the Olympic Village, in protest of the city of Vancouver’s handling of the development. While Millennium still hasn’t made good on its $732 million bill from the city, many of the rooms remain empty and promises of low-income housing have been scaled back. This comes at a time when the city has repeatedly expressed its plan to end homelessness by 2015, a plan some say is unrealistic.
