Campers Remain in Nanaimo’s Tent City
The tent city in Nanaimo, one of the largest in B.C., has grown to about 200 residents.
No decision has been made about what to do with the campers in Nanaimo’s tent city.
However, the city has permission to enforce a provincial order, stating that every tent needs to be at least three metres from any other tent, along with the removal of tarps and other flammable material.
Nanaimo Mayor Bill McKay says the campers need to follow the fire regulation order.
The next court date hasn’t been scheduled, but the date is expected to be in the next two weeks.
McKay says the campers will likely stay put until a court decision is made.
