Homeless

Gastown, Vancouver

When homeless people are put into single-occupancy hotel rooms or social-morass housing, they are being warehoused. Those folks (the silent majority that actually populates the DTES) who are merely old, poor, and crippled and who choose to live downtown, close to necessary services and facilities, are also vulnerable to the invalidating properties of the hotel and social housing industry. The lack of home causes alienation and unhappiness in human beings; the willingness of a society to profit from it provides more of the same.
