To the editor,
Re: Count gives city updated snapshot of homelessness, Oct. 7.
With all that has happened since March, this count has lost much of its validity for October 2020.
Perhaps homeless people have migrated to Victoria from Nanaimo in hopes of getting a government-sponsored motel room. Perhaps job losses have increased the homeless population.
I think another survey is needed now to have confidence in the numbers, challenges, etc.
