Camping in Cruickshank Park

The start of a tent city or a one-off? (Click to enlarge.)

Someone’s camping in Cruickshank Park; they’ve been there for several days. Their position tucked under the trees provides shade and renders them almost invisible from the south. Let’s hope they can find better accommodation soon. The park should not become an alternative housing location as is happening in Nathan Phillips Square and several downtown locations. There are no toilet or washing facilities in Cruickshank Park and no doubt human waste is either piling up or going into the river.

Let’s hope social services can step in and find them better accommodation.
