Homeless campers

RCMP attribute spike in crime to tent city at Goldstream Park Campground

Hopefully this isn't the start of a trend.

That CG owner has a huge problem, how to clean up or evict those "campers"; however it is that owners responsibility.

If I read the article correctly, it is the Canuck version of a state or federal park.



What gets to me is that the "host" and park officials are letting them stay even after tacitly acknowledging the drug use and agreeing to perform "police call" every day, and also admitting that it isn't safe for the general public.

What if you had a vacation scheduled and planned for a week there then found out that your vacation was taking a hit in order to placate a couple of dozen homeless druggies?
I can't use the words on here that I would use if that happened to me.....

Thatís a provincial park. Public, not privately owned.

Thanks, I missed that part. Government-owned/controlled, now I understand_.

Why is drug use tolerated in a public park?

Just like public land anywhere, you should be required to move after two weeks to prevent squatting, and give others a chance to enjoy publicly owned property. They should be asked to leave the park after two weeks. I assume this is British Columbia, but it still must get cold in the winter. Cant see them allowing camping in the winter.

They have already been there for a few weeks and are now getting an additional two weeks, but the conduct warrants an immediate removal from the campground.


Bus tickets to San Francisco come to mind.
