Poverty Olympics – Part Three (Final)

My third and final installment of Olympic shots. The first part was from a rally against the Olympics. The second part was shots from the chaotic downtown core, as well as the amazing energy immediately following Canada winning Gold in hockey. This third installment takes a look back at the Downtown Eastside, specifically the tent city that went up as a call for action. Homeless folks from all over came and set up tents, and squatted on an empty lot that was slated for low-incoming housing, but will now be (surprise surprise) a condo. Of course, for the sake of privacy, no photos were allowed of the inhabitants. I think I’ve exhausted the issue of the DTES, so I will just the hope photos speak for themselves.
