Extreme Weather Alert

December 12, 2009 at 10:52 pm 7 comments

Homeless shelters in VAncouver and area declared it to be ‘extreme weather’ beginning last  week.  this means they have to accept people in despite the shelters being full.  “The Mat Program” sees vinyl coded mats placed on the floor in the lounge , so all the tables and chairs have to be moved back.  bags with comforters, blankets etc. are handed out and if  the mat people are lucky they get a bowl of soup.

it’s crowded, the mat people are pretty hard core, but what else do you do? 

to date i’m not aware of anyone being ‘forced ‘ into here by police , nor forced into jail. 

and we’re  how many days away from the olympics?

    Jesus. And you’re going to get a bunch of snow, I see, too.

    I hope you are keeping well, Scout! I’m thinking about you lots and hoping something else can be found for you SOON.

    hey sassy and coyote! the noise level can be a bit much at times until they shut off the tv …mind ytou most of the mat program people are dead beat by then. it’s overcrowded now with then being allowed some meals, and the population fluctuates…..it went way down on the weekend, of course, so monday or tuesday should start picking up again.

    the language gets to be a bit much as the mat program people are pretty hard core, most have been in prison and still act like it. fights are breaking out all over but no fisticuffs yet, just yelling. mind you, i had a good one the other day with some lippy kid….haha, actually called him out to see if he’d scrap…no, of course, and the young worker who was on threatened me with the standard line of , ‘you could be kicked out for that’. i just said back, ‘no. don’t even try using that line on me, you can’t kick me out, just even try, it won’t worik, go ask your supervisor’. i got applause for that one.

    stinky staff have lots of lines they try to use as threats but i’ve photocopied and reduced their mission statement and mandate and wear it around my neck, along with a few others….gee, hmm, wonder why i’m getting more respect now????

    have made up a list of questions and points and am advocating for us residents…..the institutional model just cries for this. oh brother, once a shit distruber, always a shit disturber 😀

    haha, It sounds like you should be staff there Scout. Have you missed your calling?

    Stay well, keep warm and safe.

    hey sassy…….actually did an interview with cbc radio today….staged a small sit in when one of our beloved fellow residents got kicked out for handing his bedding to a homeless guy because front desk staff wouldn’t give him any. anyways, made a stand, wrote a petition up, read the blurb to cbc and we’ll see if they air it or not….they have to get a hold of the manager and this is one he may be ducking out on.

    whatever, if that doesn’t work we’ll start our own blog 😀

    Sending warm Christmas wishes to you dear Scout. All the very best from Austinxx

    All the best for improvements in your living situation for 2010.
