Ian: Seen whilst out biking the other day … not going to say where (although it’s not exactly trying to hide), because I don’t want anyone telling them to leave.
“We all dream of owning our own homes. Some dreams come true while others don’t. This is my home. It’s all I got, but it’s a start. Please respect it. Just like you I’ve got a heart. … It’s just my home that’s not outside.
There might not be any more perfect encapsulation of the Vancouver condition for many: eking out a place for one’s own, yearning for a start, a place, the manifestation of what should by rights be a simple dream, all while huddling up next to development, and hoping that no-one tries to push you aside.
Here’s hoping that nobody starts pushing.
