The Law Union of BC supports the residents of Oppenheimer Park and condemns the actions of the City of Vancouver in attempting to remove them. We oppose the displacement of the Oppenheimer Park residents, who are already facing the most serious effects of the housing crisis. Oppenheimer Tent City, like other tent cities, allows residents to create community and stability where they may otherwise be trapped in uncertain shelter-hopping or living on the streets alone.
As members of the legal community, we stand with Oppenheimer Park tent city residents and their allies in the fight for the right to housing and to freedom from displacement and harassment.
