Free Camping

Posted on Tue, Nov 8, 2011 at 11:13 AM

I'd like to bitch about the fact that the homeless took this long to figure out that there's free camping by City Hall. Apparently all you have to do is say that you're protesting something that you know will never change. So you just set up your tent and stick a sign outside saying "protesting social inequality". Free camping for life, close to the good begging spots and all amenities. Why pay $1200 a month to live downtown when City Hall is giving it away for free? Who was the genius who neglected to make a "no camping on public property" bylaw? Seems like a rather obvious thing to do. Not one bum ever tried that before? Probably did but the cops just dragged him away. Cops are getting lazy these days. Tent cities are an eyesore and a sign of lack of proper government administration. —JJ
