Surrey Bylaw officers threaten to displace new homeless camp, homeless campers announce plans to resist
Surrey bylaw enforcement officers are threatening to displace over 50 homeless people, who are camping in a wooded lot off of King George Blvd past 112th Ave, which campers have named ‘Sanctuary.’
One year has passed since police, city workers, and social workers cleared nearly 100 tents off the 135A Street “Surrey Strip”. Homeless activists say the anniversary is nothing to celebrate.
On June 5th, current and former camp residents, drug users, and activists will challenge Fraser Health to ignore local anti-drug user rhetoric and open a lifesaving OPS to replace the one shut down by Mayor Morden.
