A Thousand Dreams: Vancouvers Downtown Eastside and the Fight for Its Future by Larry Campbell, Neil Boyd, Lori Culbert

In this mix of history, journalism, political analysis, and first-person accounts, former chief coroner and Vancouver mayor Larry Campbell, renowned criminologist Neil Boyd, and investigative journalist Lori Culbert, offer a portrait of one of North Americas poorest, most drug-challenged neighbourhoods: Vancouvers Downtown Eastside. A Thousand Dreamsraises provocative questions about the challenges confronting not only Vancouvers Downtown Eastside but also all of North Americas major cities and offers concrete, urgently needed solutions, including: Continued support for Insite, the safe injection site Decriminalization of prostitution and drugs The transfer of addiction services to the Health Ministry, allowing detox into the medical system More government-funded SROs and more affordable social housing
