Last week I had the opportunity to spend a night in my van outside Gordon Campbell’s constituency office.  I didn’t want anyone to be alarmed or afraid so I buzzed (yes, you have to buzz to get into his office, the same office with the bullet proof glass).  I explained what i was doing and a nice though slightly fearful woman told me she would message B.C.’s Premier.  I told her to tell him that this is fair protest against his legislation that would allow the police to force homeless people into shelters or jail (during the Olympics of course, the legislation time lines run around the Olympic window).

I also asked her to tell Gordy I didn’t want any hassle or to be towed away by the cops.  The young woman said Gordy doesn’t have power over Vancouver cops, so I said, “Yes, but he has a phone to talk with Vancouver’s Mayor”.  I also asked her to tell him that while i disagree with him I love him (the dark just won’t go away so we might as well all send thoughts of love to him in hopes he’ll get a heart transplant).

The night was uneventful save for a friend popping by.  I worked on a song I was writing, had supper and by the time i got all the signs I wanted on my van it was time to go to sleep.

I woke up to a ticket on my windshield for parking in a passenger zone.

A few passersby stopped to give word of support and not long after it was time to pull away and get to an appointment.

Hey Gordy, ya know what?  Yuppies treat their dogs better then you treat people.

    Good for you! Shitty that you got a ticket, though. Hmph. I would have stayed with you in solidarity if I’d been in the area!

    Incidentally, I’ve heard from two very reliable sources that the government is already shipping homeless/”undesirables” to the interior – to Trail, in fact. No housing here, and we have already had one suicide. I’ll have to do a post on this.

    coyote…..ya, somehow i would know you’d stand in solidarity, and that’s awesome to know 😛 . trail…hmmmm….seems a funny place to ship the homeless to. that’d be great if you did a post on it….bastards!

    Hey Scout….good for you. Every time these fascist spectacles are held the same thing happens. They try to hide the homeless or the poor. When if only they spent the money they are spending on security we could provide decent low cost housing for homeless people all over Canada.
    Keep up the good fight I’m with ya all the way !!! 🙂
