The full interview with bonus material:
Last week, there were interviews with county officials. You have heard from a person who was living in the encampment. But what is it like from the perspective of an individual trying to support those living rough?
Missy Mclean is a social worker for the Northumberland Legal Centre specializing in tenant issues. She is also a community organizer working on harm reduction for people struggling with addiction. She has worked directly with Virginia Bailey and other people at the encampment from the very start. Her efforts will provide yet another view of what has unfolded and what needs to be done.
