People encamped in City of Victoria parks are officially transitioning to indoor housing, after the city's bylaw prohibiting daytime camping took effect May 1. It's expected to take time to move everyone in the park who is homeless into accommodations secured by BC Housing.
"I don't want people camping in the city of Victoria," Mayor Lisa Helps told CBC Radio. "It's not good for anyone. I mean, that's been abundantly clear ... Our parks are not campgrounds."
