Roy speaks about horrible living conditions in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES) SRO Hotel

June 29, 2009 Leave a comment

In this video, Roy ( who declined to be filmed ) speaks about the horrible living conditions which include bed bugs, rats and cockroaches that he and his partner face.

What is even more surprising is how his rent jumped $65 dollars extra  and how he lives on just $100 a month for support!!

Roy’s personal story is just one of the indications that gentrification and homelessness are becoming more apparent in the Vancouver Downtown Eastside
