Advocates for Vancouver’s homeless are calling on the city’s mayor and council to intervene on behalf of an estimated 100 people camping in Oppenheimer park.

According to the Carnegie Community Action Project (CCAP), as many as 100 people are living in about 48 tents in the snow-covered park amid freezing temperatures.

The group is calling on the city and the province to provide a safe indoor space, heat, hygiene and shelter for the campers.
