Please join them for the  live online press conference on Wednesday, January 21 at 1:00 pm for the official launch.

To celebrate, they're featuring Murray Siple's documentary  Carts of Darkness (see below)which takes viewers for a bumpy ride through the affluent neighbourhood of North Vancouver where a group of homeless men enjoy the extreme sport of shopping-cart racing. The film has been called “a groundbreaking film on the homeless” and “incredibly fun to watch” by  The Vancouver Sun.
