Tavis W. Dodds

Tavis Dodds is a regular contributor to Victoria Street News. He has been arrested several times for political activity, most notably the Right to Sleep Charter Challenge (City of Vancouver vs. Adams et al.) in 2008, which recognized, for the first time in Canada, the constitutional right of homeless people to sleep. He lives in Gibsons, B.C., with his two children.

At the homeless shelter at the First United Church, Tavis W. Dodds learns the closer to the altar, the better the sleep. Winner of the 2009 Downtown Eastside Writers' Jamboree Writing Contest. more »
