The city’s swift move to open a shelter at 900 Pacific Street, in advance of any provincial decisions about winter-shelter funding, and to lease the Quality Inn for two years, in the absence of any conversations with the province about support, is a sign of Vision Vancouver ramping things up even further in its aggressive efforts to tackle the homelessness problem.

But local residents only found out about this on the news (yes, some people still watch television, Virginia) and are not thrilled. My story.
