Judy Graves: Vancouver homeless advocate's lasting legacy

For almost 20 years Judy Graves has been advocating for Vancouver's homeless. Inspiring the homeless counts with her own mini-survey, Graves' advocacy and compassion for people living on the street is unparalleled. As the city's only full-time homelessness advocate prepares to retire next month, Megaphone talks to Graves, the person who knows Vancouver's homelessness issue the best.
