Finally completed the PowerPoint presentation and supplementary binder to go along with the Head to Toe pitch to more businesses. Best part is that this will double as my class presentation as well!
We just finished dropping off all of our donations! Covenant House is located at 575 Drake St, so it was a bit of a trek in. There were Youth surrounding the building, even though I’m quite sure that that location isn’t a shelter.
Mr. Savard wasn’t working on the weekends, but the man at the front desk was in shock of all of our products.
He informed me that they were completely out of socks before we arrived.
On that note, I have decided to continue with the project outside of Social Justice class, and bring it to a larger scale.
Stay tuned for new information!

To The Editor,
The comments made by lawyer Jason Gratl in your papers article (published November 14th, 2011) City’s Blunt Assessment: Occupy, And Pot Smell, Must Go, completely and utterly missed the mark. Being not only a politically conscious individual, but also a student enrolled in the Social Justice 12 class at Tamanawis Secondary, this written commentary troubled me. I am sure we have all seen the rows of unclean tents and sniffed the less than pleasant odors that have been wafting by the Vancouver Art Gallery over the past few months. While I myself am an Occupy Supporter, it is time that the “Tent City” is closed down. That being said, many would be quick to dispute this; such as Sean O’Flynn-Magee, alongside his lawyer Jason Gratl as shown in this article. While Gratl is concerned that his client’s Chartered rights are being sullied, one must reason that this cannot supersede that of the majority’s rights. A group of people cannot utilize public land indefinitely. Vancouver has recognized the Occupy voice thanks to this protest, and the time is rapidly approaching to elevate the cause to new heights; that of civic and provincial level. On that note, I would urge not only Gratl’s client, but also the entire Occupy Movement to occupy a public elected position rather than seize public land to further their political beliefs.
