The City of Vancouver is struggling to find enough shelter space for the homeless during this cold snap.
Vision Vancouver Councilor Kerry Jang says he’s afraid somebody will die.
He says there’s not enough shelter space and the City is dealing with a record-number of homeless people being turned away.
“Don’t forget Vancouver has had two people die already over the last few years just trying to keep warm. Remember Dawn who set herself on fire, Chris who did the same thing, just trying to keep warm in their make-shift tents.”
Jang says the City is running out of buildings it can renovate to be used as shelters, as the city grows and development booms.
