The Vancouver Police Department were at Strathcona Park investigating a death in the tent city on Sunday, December 6, 2020. This is tragic. It demonstrates the precarious situation and the dangers for many people sheltering in place.
This encampment in Strathcona Park was established on June 16, 2020. This was the day that the Port Authority, under the control of the federal government, with the help of the VPD, closed down the encampment beside Crab Park.
May this person’s soul rest in peace.
