More people died homeless in British Columbia in 2015 than in any year on record. At least 70 homeless people died in 2015, more than one person per week. This is a crisis on our streets that demands an emergency response.
Join Megaphone to call upon the next B.C. provincial government to support a Death Review Panel on homeless deaths.
A Death Review Panel examines a group of deaths and develops recommendations to reduce the likelihood of similar deaths in the future.
This is what we need to do:
1. Conduct a Death Review Panel.
2. Fund the BC Coroners Service to create an annual report that offers deeper analysis and data about homeless deaths across the province.
3. Implement a Poverty Reduction Strategy in B.C.
Stand with us. Add your name to say: No More Homeless Deaths.
Update: Both the BCNDP and the BC Green Party have committed to support an investigation into homeless deaths. Thank you for your support, let's keep sharing so we can get all three parties to commit!
