Social housing has been a hot button topic in Vancouver for quite some time. While most people in the know agreed it is a serious problem, none of them could devise a long term solution that best address the need.
I don’t claim to be an expert nor do I pretend to know a lot about the subject. But having worked in 2 of the lowest income neighborhoods in Vancouver, I do see it first hand.
Little Mountain was an old social housing project that I’ve driven by many times but had no idea what it was until a few months ago when, by chance, I came across reports of its demise.
These were taken one afternoon in April while on my way home from work. Since then long time residents have vacated and chain-linked fences have surrounded the complex. Demolition seems inevitable.
Just another day in paradise?!
