I sure hope that they donít move near my neighbourhood. I would rather have them out there. Just saying.

And that, I believe, is why they have not been evicted earlier.  The city and all others concerned have been told about this problem for months but the problem is always, where will they go from there?
The Teskey camp was visible to only the Promontory people until the leaves recently came off, then social media took over.
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad their going, but others most likely will be back.

I think it is a problem that they are stealing and polluting the river system.

I donít care so much about them living or camping on the river.

RCMP should be concerned with the amount of stolen property and safety of those who they stole it from. 

If there was no theft and pollution involved, most of the public would not care.

homeless people camping on rivers and streams has become a common occurrence in the Fraser Valley. Maybe there is an affordable housing problem? Do you think?

The drug problem out here is far worse then the affordable housing problem. When you spend all your money on drugs it doesnít matter if rent is 10 dollars a month. Itís still not getting paid

Speaks the truth...

 city of vancouver has built about 4 buildings downtown in prime areas and itís all social housing. Homeless are given a room and set off in the right path to recovery and getting work. Itís a disaster, the buildings are all destroyed and they are barely two years old. Drug dealers have moved in and are selling and Living there. I used to service to HVAC there but wonít go back. The stuff Iíve seen..incredible... one day a guy went insane and was chopping down doors with an axe on one of the floors...

Build the social housing you want and itís not going to make a difference in the drug problem. Lots of homeless choose to be homeless because shelters donít allow dogs and they donít allow a half dozen shopping carts full of the crap they tote around, also you canít openly use drugs in the shelter. So keeping your stuff and being able to use drugs whenever you want is a considering factor why these homeless camps are so busy.

Yes how our society manages drug use is a big problem. However not everyone who is homeless has a substance abuse problem. Not everyone with a substance abuse problem supports it via theft or similar illegal activities. Friend of mine who had a breakdown was homeless for a few months as a result. Most people who go into social housing or shelters do not end up back on the street. That's a fact!

Looking at these issues via cliches & labeling won't provide much of a solution either.

Your right, not all homeless are drug users and vicer versa. There is a small percentage of people that have mental health issues, and arenít addicted to drugs i suppose. Some have mental health issues from the drugs.

Letís no kid ourselves though. When you see a homeless camp with multiple bikes they arenít avid cyclists, when you see a pile of  lawn maitenance stuff lawnmowers and rakes lying around they arenít gardeners. This is all stolen items scoured from around the neighbourhood stolen to ultimately sell to have money for drugs.

Iím going to go out on a lim and assume your friend who was homeless from a breakdown didnít surround himself in stolen property that was to be sold for drug money. Two different types of homeless, this is typically the homeless you donít see.They are living in cars or discretely away from the judging eyes of the public. The testky camp is probably responsible for some of the car break ins...

Your right most people who go into social housing donít go back on the street. They just stay in social housing moving from municipality to municipality. Why would they go back on the street... itís cold and hard. Much easier to work the system who you and I pay for through taxís. Work harder someone else doesnít have too  ::)

 >:(.....this mayor needs to get her act together and get rcmp on these criminal camps...its rcmp job to  combat theft. the more pressure RCMP put on these indivituals the less time they will have to organize these camps on a "regular" basis around here. constant harrassment is the key. Ive walked by the camp over a dozen times....garbage everywhere...absolute """"hole. Hopefully the next enforcement will be a full teardown.

They surely are only a symptom, not the issue.
