Vancouver's downtown Eastside was once the bustling centre of the city. By the 1990s, however, the neighbourhood was in free fall. Growing homelessness, open drug use, escalating HIV rates, and the disappearance of vulnerable women from the streets attracted international media attention and sparked conflicts between advocates and policy makers about how to address the problems.
