This town has gone so far down hill in the last 20 years its now an embarassment to live here. Im getting my familly out of here before one of my children gets stabbed. Extreemly failed community. No one should be locating here. It wrecked.

The number of people on the street has more to do with drugs than lack of housing. When I first moved here a lot of the street people were mentally ill with no place to go. This is not a black and white issue.

We just had a drug related public execution in RockCity.

Stop blaming the taxpayers of Nanaimo for the problem. We can not go borrow money to support you as some of us disabled and on pensions will be joining you shortly when we lose our homes. Wake up please somebody has to pay.

There is a huge job market in Nanaimo, get one and contribute what you can.

We have to thank the men pushing full grocery carts full of city junk. They are keeping the city of Nanaimo clean for free. The Homeless living in housing provided by the city should help the city during snow storms get off their butts and clean the snow off city streets. Unions may protest but city taxpayers who pay for a roof over the head of homeless won't complain.

homeless people are homeless because people that have homes want 1 million for them. and the government wants 400k for the land. in reality every canadian is homeless because the crown owns all as per bna act our constitution. look in the mirror.

Homeless commit crimes and dont get arrested not for trespassing, defecating on streets, and are taking over the city. People are shying away from parks, parks that we taxpayers own, because it's unsafe for us and being taken over by homeless druggies
