Dani and I share a conversation about festival culture at PLAYGROUND
Home-free in Vancouver -- Peter lives in Stanley Park
Peter is a pastry chef who has traveled the world, including serving in Bosnia. He can't work due to arthritis in his hands and has been sleeping outside four years. He plays $100 for a storage locker and sleeps on a picnic table in Stanley park. Rangers know he is there, but don't hassle as he keeps the place clean and doesn't stay when families come. He cleans himself with hot water from the tap in the public bathroom or aquatic centre.
He is so acclimatized to being outside that being inside to go to movies gives him the flu. When he turns 55 BC housing puts him on the fast track to getting a home. He also has an social care advocate to wade through any bureaucracy.
He said a person shouldn't go hungry in Vancouver, or be in need of clothes, but safe, dry sleeping spaces are tricky. Storing things where they will not get stolen is hard. He hides his sleeping bag in the bush under a camp tarp.
A well spoken, kind person, Peter shared slices of his brick of cheese with me as we sat talking for 40 minutes. He gave a great interview enjoying life and watching everyone around him. He was excited about his new Hanging HUGS Hammock. I taught him how to tie the knots to make set up and take down a snap.
