Street Smart Kidz of Canada has recognized this "horrible blight", for the last 10 years"! As we have traveled and taught through out Canada we have met and talked with our Canadian homeless children coast to coast. But NEVER more so than BC. Especially Vancouver and Victoria. Kids from all over Canada end up here. Why? Weather! When they run away, for whatever reason and they just CAN'T/WON'T go back, over 62% of end up here.
