Christmas in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver


Christmas in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver – Follow my blog at This video was produced on Christmas eve, with the Windows Movie Maker Program.

Quite a few of the support agencies receiving provincial and federal money to operate in this neighborhood are in fact located behind locked bars and their doors never open to help these people. One agency always has it’s doors open and I included a shot of their sign. I do not mean this to be in bad taste and if it helps anyone at all I am happy I made it.
