“We refuse to leave” – tent city residents in Duncan simply defy court order


From CHEK TV News:

Dozens remain in a homeless camp in Duncan, despite a B.C. Supreme Court imposed order to dismantle the gathering. 

Campers were told to clear out of the Charles Hoey Park by 3 p.m. on Thursday. 

A Duncan Commissionaire accompanied with a RCMP officer delivered the notice at 2 p.m., but campers remained. 

“We got the court order and I’m not really sure what the plan is at this point” said one camper.

But at 3 p.m., RCMP didn’t show up and tents stayed up. 

The camp was first set up on March 31 as a temporary protest against the lack of affordable housing in the area.
