Closed-door meetings are being held to figure out the best way to clear another tent city out of Vancouver’s Oppenheimer Park, according to one city councillor.
Councillor Jean Swanson says she can’t disclose details of possible remedies being discussed at City Hall.
There are more than 100 tents at the site and Swanson is advocating for adequate housing to be found for all the campers.
“A lot of them don’t want to go to a crappy SRO because of bed bugs and rats and cockroaches. The conditions are bad,” she says.
