Tireless advocate of Vancouver's most vulnerable, David Eby puts forward a few suggestions to address the needs of Vancouver's homeless aboriginal population.
he City of Vancouver, home to B.C.'s largest off-reserve aboriginal population in the Downtown Eastside, is celebrating National Aboriginal Day on June 16 with some speeches and, apparently, hip hop.
Local aboriginal people seem hard pressed, however, to forget the treatment of aboriginal people at the hands of local police and in jails, or to forget that they are disproportionately represented in the street population in the City and in the SROs of the DTES.
