Street Beat: Vancouver police try to help homeless people off the street

In issue #102, Megaphone goes on a ride-along with the Vancouver Police Department’s homeless outreach coordinator. It’s a new relationship between the police force and the city’s vulnerable population that has some homeless advocates singing its praises and others questioning whether it's the best use of resources.

 

Also in this issue, we review a book of poetry and a book of short stories from two talented Vancouver-based writers (and Megaphone volunteers). We also look at the crumbling Missing Women's Inquiry and we give you a guide to the city's best art events.

 

And don't miss out on David Suzuki's wise words about Canada's marine ecosystems or this edition's horoscopes. Plus vendor voices, profiles and poetry from our community writing workshops. All this and more!
