Join us for the Street Deaths are Preventable Deaths. A week of education and action Between 2006 and 2013, at least 281 people have died on the streets in British Columbia. Due to under-reporting, that number is likely much higher. Victoria has the highest number of street deaths per capita in BC. In a four month period, 30 people died on the streets of this city. These deaths are preventable. Not only are there tangible causes, but viable solutions. We need adequate health services, social housing, and harm reduction services. We need all levels of government to commit to eliminating poverty and preventing street deaths. More detailed event info below - see you there!

As we count down the final days to Dining Out For Life, we've got some great restaurant profile videos coming up to share! This one is courtesy of our friend Morgan Alexander and the staff at the Clay Pigeon. The Clay Pigeon has been a Dining Out For Life partner since their inception just over 3 years ago. We love this little shop on the corner of Blanshard and Broughton. They're participating for dinner on April 30 so consider them if you haven't yet made up your mind!
