I just love this province.
Not only has that entire 4 block section of Hastings St been made into a 30km/hr section, there is even more good news for the residents of the downtown eastside.
Reported on Global TV is the story of the 40 professional photographers and associated make up artists that have spent their weekend doing make up and taking holiday pictures of those unfortunate people free of charge because they can't afford them on their own. And not only that, but they get new clothes for their pictures free of charge that they get to keep!
Additionally there is a group of people down there inspecting, treating and "pampering" (the newscasters term, not mine) the feet of those downtrodden and unfortunate souls. Because as it was so noted by the newscaster "You are on your feet all day and they get tired."
It warms my heart to see these poor unfortunate people, who through no fault of their own are living lifestyles like that, provided quality treatment like this.
