The Vancouver 2010 Olympics are coming up in about a year, and until recently I had no idea that Vancouver had such a crisis with its homeless/drug population. I don't mean to insult the city of Vancouver. It looks, and I'm sure it is a beautiful city, but what is the government going to do with all of the homeless in the city for the Games? I've seen videos on youtube of Hastings Street (I guess that's East Vancouver) of swaths of homeless and drug addicted people roaming that area of the city. It's really sad if you ask me. With the economy getting worse and more people losing their jobs I wonder how this is going to effect that population. Does the city plan on providing temporary housing for them? Vancouver must have a lot of preparation for constructing the Olympic venues so I can imagine how this can certainly be an added strain to an unwanted situation.
