Parks Open To Campers?

Pitch a Tent in Bowen Park?

Sound preposterous? A recent provincial court ruling has opened the door making camping in Victoria's parks quite legal. Since this is a provincial ruling, it would seem to apply to all of the province.

The court struck down a bylaw in Victoria which meant the homeless had to pack up their tents between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm. A query has been sent to Nanaimo officials and their reply will be included in this post when received.

Perhaps recent civic candidate Brunie Brunie was ahead of her time? If you can camp in the parks, then why not on the City Hall lawn?
