Streets of Plenty – Vancouver’s Downtown Homeless
In just a few days, a large portion of the world will focus its attention to the city of Vancouver and the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

The month-long social experiment is an authentic perspective ranging from the use of hardcore drugs to the violence and social issues that plague this pocket of Vancouver.
