People unite to challenge Canada’s housing ministers

On Tuesday, June 28th, residents and supporters of Super InTent City were joined by low-income people, those living in tent cities, and facing displacement on the mainland, to rally outside a meeting of federal, provincial and territorial housing ministers in Victoria. Armed with banners and loud voices, protesters attempted to hand deliver a letter with 2 demands of the tent cities movement: “Stop criminalizing poverty and displacing the poor!” And “End homelessness now!”
