Early in the morning on June 4, 2013, workers from the City of Abbotsford, BC pulled up to a homeless camp on the side of the road and dumped a truckload of chicken manure on the site while those who had been sleeping there scrambled to pull their belongings out of the way. Intended as a "quick and dirty" way to disperse this "problem population," little did those who concocted the scheme realize the public outcry and the legal actions that would unfold. I just happened to be on the ground shooting as this incident played out. I intend to tell this story through a documentary film called "The 5&2," named after a ministry in Abbotsford that serves and advocates on behalf of the homeless and other marginalized individuals in Abbotsford.
