Leaving a Mark: Graffiti at the Bosman Hotel tells story of housing program's success

A successful study pairing hard-to-house homeless people with safe, stable housing in Vancouver is drawing to a close. With no housing guaranteed after spring, Megaphone Issue #120 examines the positive affects the At Home/Chez Soi project has had on homeless people through the graffiti they left on the walls of their home, The Bosman Hotel.


Also in this issue, sex workers and lawyers criticize the Missing Women's Commission of Inquiry report for failing to place blame for the murders and disappearances of vulnerable women, yet feel positive about the report's recommendations for women's safety in the future; Megaphone vendor Dan DeCoste details his journey from nursing in Nova Scotia to vending in Vancouver; a Portland street paper vendor ends decades of hitchhiking and alcoholism to settle into his first home in 34 years; poetry and prose from Megaphone's writing workshops; horoscopes; arts listings; and more!
