dting on the streets

At least 281 homeless people died in British Columbia between 2006 and 2013. The true number is likely much higher.

As municipalities across B.C. struggle with increasing homelessness and the City of Vancouver works to try and end homelessness by 2015, little attention is paid to the hundreds of lives lost in the province simply because individuals could not access proper housing.
