Susan Henry talks about poverty in Vancouver, Canada

Susan is an advocate at First United Church in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside -- the poorest neighbourhood in Canada. The church lets homeless people take shelter and sleep in the pews. There are more than 2600 homeless people in Vancouver, BC, and the province of BC has the highest poverty rate in Canada. This video was created as part of a slideshow about BC's welfare, or social assistance, program. Watch the full slideshow here.
