Homeless in Vancouver: All too common sight of another leaky condo
Here’s another building that has, as they say, “taken the veil”. Must be a hard decision and a major step in any leaky building’s life.
It represents a near-lifetime commitment, or it must feel that way to the people who not only have to live under the tarps and mosquito nets for a year or more, but who also get to pay for the privilege.
Considering how many building I can see in this condition in Fairview alone, I am led to wonder: if this tarp, mesh, and scaffolding arrangement is so gosh-darned waterproof, why aren’t people just building this way to begin with?
