While Victoria, B.C., is on average the “warmest city in Canada”, these past weeks’ temperatures have not lived up to that title.

The city has experienced record-breaking low temperatures, and as a result, there’s concern for people experiencing homelessness, who are not accustomed to dealing with this type of extreme cold.
