Prince Rupert's Tent City Archives

A protest camp was set up at Prince Rupert City Hall on November 8th,
with organizers looking to draw attention to the homeless situation and
need for more affordable housing in the community.

With the housing situation now front and centre at City Hall, with a reminder available every morning for the Mayor and Council to review, we will track any developments on the issue as the tent city protest moves forward.

Below we'll archive the range of stories and background items related to the tent encampment that has been put in place at City Hall, along with items of note on any progress related to the Housing issues that have been brought forward by the camp and those that have organized it.

The Archive will be anchored in our North Coast Extra Edition listings as part of our right hand column offerings.
