Vancouver Homeless Death toll at 2
We all read this morning about Tracey, the homeless woman who burned to death last night when trying to warm herself over a candle. I am now posting this via David Eby's blog, about the fact that there was another death which didn't make the news, which happened on Tuesday.
From Stephanie, a regular reader and plugged in DTES resident, worker and observer:
I'm sorry to report this, but there was a death Tuesday night that didn't make the media - I found out about it Wednesday night from a colleague who works for an agency that serves people with mental illness. Three people went to sleep together, and only two of them woke. Apparently the young man who died was here from up north and had only been in town four or five days.
