BLUE CABIN SPEAKER SERIES: DANIEL FRANCIS

Squatters have been a fixture in Burrard Inlet since before Vancouver was created. Their story encompasses the history of Gastown and Kitsilano, the dispossession of Indigenous people, the evolution of Stanley Park, the hobo jungles of the Great Depression, and the search for affordable housing in an always-expensive metropolis. Author Daniel Francis describes this history, illustrating his talk with photographs both archival and contemporary.
