Calling all Bloggers – It’s Who You Know That Counts…

January 16, 2010 at 7:25 pm 13 comments

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.

    Do you have a Twitter account? If not, I suggest you – and any friends who are homeless you have – get one. People on Twitter have sometimes been helped in getting connected, even assisted financially, when they’ve been hit by sudden bad circumstances. I can think of one case just recently of a woman who became homeless just after xmas.

    I’ll tweet your post to my Twitter account. Every little bit of help counts, right?

    Man, Scout, this is so shitty I don’t even have words. And I have NO connections there at all. Have you tried Shihtzustaff? I feel so helpless here in the Koots…I wish I could do more for you that just feel bad! Fucking Gordo!!!

    his Scout….I am sorry to hear that you were attacked in that shelter, and that you are in such a situation. If I was there I’d have a little…um…chat with that bully. 😉
    I hope you find a better place soon. I also can’t believe that’s what they are calling “new” shelters. These people are shameless.
    And yes don’t these fascist spectacles suck? I can’t believe that they blew a billion bucks just on security. That’s absolutely nuts. The G20 Summit is going to be held just a few block away from where I live so I also fully expect to get a good look at what Harper’s police state will look like.
    Good luck !!!

    chrystal….thanks for the tip….i’m not sure how to use twitter and if i did, what i would say. guess i’m twitter illitter-ite. will look into how to use, meantime thanks!!!

    coyote….thanks, i know if you were here you would help but you’re not and the best thing any one can do is spread the word to get gordo out of town!!!!

    simon, ah yes, shelter bullshit. let’s just house them all in like rats. campbell is a cruel man. cruel. thanks for the muscle offer :D. good gawd, whatever are you going to do with the g-20 coming your way????

  • 5. sassy  |  January 18, 2010 at 8:43 am

    Oh Scout, I can’t be of any assistance in that I have no such connections. So sorry.

    Although I’m not on twitter either, I think Chrystal’s suggestion is worth giving a try.

    I notice you have a donate button on your sidebar, why not put one up for yourself?

    Thanks for your updates, even when the news is not great.

    Scout,

    I am so sorry things are so rough for you. If you haven’t already looked into this, is it possible that the Kettle Friendship Society may be of help. They have a housing programme.

    http://www.thekettle.ca/programs.aspx

    Click on the blue housing services button to the left.

    Thinking of you and will let you know if I hear of anything else that may be of help.

    Scout

    Has it ever occurred to you to quite pissing and moaning and actually try?

    Syncro

    • 8. Wandering Coyote  |  January 19, 2010 at 9:24 am

      I do hope that was a failed attempt at humour…

  • 11. scout  |  January 19, 2010 at 1:08 pm

    sassy…thanks for your concern….naw, i couldn’t put up a donation thing for myself. am doing well , actually, now that things have settled down.

    GAB….thanks, i went to the kettle’s website and emailed them.

    syncro…..heh? try what? i’m not pissing and moaning, i ‘m revealing the reality of what’s out there. that’s that. can’t you handle the reality or something?

    jesus…..heh heh on your response to asshat. i’ll take your hope any day.

  • 12. 900ft jesus  |  January 20, 2010 at 8:25 am

    well don’t be shy if you need anything. You’ve always been there for others. Need an secure address for you though.

  • 13. Austin  |  January 28, 2010 at 7:58 am

    Hey Scout, Unfortunately I am no help either as I am sailing about in Port Phillip Bay. But as always I wish you every happiness and a good turn of events. Good luck in securing a safe home. Austinx
