Airbnb and billeting the homeless

*UPDATE* Since recording this episode, the Bob Dylan concert in Victoria was cancelled. FYI*

Victoria City Council is moving to restrict short term vacation rentals and the mayor is suggesting we billet the homeless in the face of a housing crisis. There’s a lot to talk about this week.

On the lighter side – concerts and comedy shows galore to cover on this week’s edition of Victoria This Week.
