Text: “B.C. working to house people camping in Vancouver park as deadline to leave looms” https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/bc-house-campers-vancouver-deadline-1.6007829
“British Columbia’s housing minister says campers in Vancouver’s Strathcona Park can either choose to accept the housing they are offered or leave the park by tomorrow’s deadline.
David Eby says there will be “difficult” conversations with campers, particularly those who do not want to move into more traditional housing, but moving from camp to camp is not a long-term solution.
Campers at the park have until Friday at 10 a.m. to tear down their tents, with Vancouver’s Park Board handling enforcement of the order to remove any temporary structures.
More than 200 people have been moved to indoor housing from the park, and Eby says he expects to house the remaining campers by the end of the week.
Police and neighbours have complained about crime connected to the park, while fire officials have voiced concerns about dangerous conditions.”
The article’s use of the word “campers” is quite interesting as other news outlets (and even the CBC in the past) have used the word “homeless” to described the people in the park. The people are certainly not the “outdoor” kind of camper. The use of language in the article itself is one point that could discussed as “accepted” / disputed.” The “campers” vs. “homeless” labels are quite different and are a source of controversy.
With prescribed title #1 is it important to clearly on “disciplines” within AOKs. In this case there are a number of disciplines including sociology, criminology, law and those related to the writing of the news article.
