Calling all Bloggers – It’s Who You Know That Counts…
While I am safe and tucked away, I got beat up by a guy at the shelter I was in (only sustaining bruises). Shelter policy is that both involved in an altercation must leave…it is for my own safety (after all, buddy boy has his goons in the shelter) , and the peace of the place. Now I’m trying to get into Vancouver’s St. Elizabeth Shelter, which is mostly gay women…a better place for me. St. Elizabeth’s has no available beds right now and i’m not going to a downtown eastside shelter, no way, nuh-uh.
I’m also on the list for the refurbished Woodwards building downtown…a mix of market and non-market housing.
If anyone has ANY connections to either place, please let me know, cuz as we all know, it’s who you know that counts. Sucks, but that’s the way.
In other shelter news, the new one that opened in the West End is mixed men and women, no segregation…..you all sleep on mats on the floor together. No way I’m sleeping next to guys after being punched and kicked. This is the way Gordie Campbell is hiding the homeless….in totally inadequate ‘all new shelters’.
All this for the sake of the Olympricks.
