Housing Crisis

Anonymous may be pitching a discussion that asks,

At least 116,000 people in BC are in housing crisis.

At the tip of the iceberg are 11,000 visibly homeless people, who have no homes at all.

Just below the surface are 40,000 hidden homeless, who sleep with family, in cars, or couch surf.

Deep under water are 65,000 people at risk of homelessness, who spend more than 50% of their income on rent. Many of them in substandard housing conditions.

How do we make this an issue for those who are not connected to any risk?
What have activists and the homeless community learned from Oppenheimer Park or Occupy?
What has city council learned since 2008?
