Videos of the year: Urban camping is a matter of survival for the homeless in Victoria, B.C


Columnist Brian Hutchinson camps at the law courts in Victoria as an urban camping experiment with a bylaw permitting homeless campers to pitch tents from 8 pm to 7 am.  Victoria has become a mecca for homeless camping.

Check out the video above to see what the experience is like.
