It will be almost a month before the province can go back to court to seek a temporary injunction to dismantle Victoria’s tent city.
A hearing has been set for June 27 and 28 at the Victoria Courthouse where more than 100 people have been living on the lawn since last November.
Many of the tents are covered in tarps and some campers have added rudimentary wood extensions.
A fire commissioner’s report warning of life-threatening dangers at the camp prompted Housing Minister Rich Coleman to make a second attempt to shut down the tent city.
The government already has a Sept. 7 court date in B.C. Supreme Court to apply for a permanent injunction.
Meanwhile, the province is looking to expand the Choices shelter in View Royal to accommodate an additional 30 people. The shelter is located in the former Youth Detention Centre.
