‘Chattel City’ in tiny downtown waterfront park now home to 30-40 campers nightly

From the Times Colonist:

The community of tenters in Reeson Park in downtown Victoria has adopted a new name for itself: “Chattel City.”

City of Victoria bylaws permit homeless people to camp in most city parks if there are no shelter beds available, but shelters and belongings must be packed up by 7 a.m.

Police wake the tenters each morning at 7 a.m.
