Linda lives at the Roosevelt Hotel, she moved to Vancouver from England when she was 12 years old. She hates the Roosevelt Hotel because if you have a visitor it will cost the visitor $20.00 to get inside the building.
Her drugs of choice are coke and rock. Detox doesn’t work because there is always a 3 week wait to get in, and then a lot of rules there as well.
Advice to young people thinking of a life on the street:
“Stay in school and learn a trade, I never did any drugs until I was 35 years old and working in a bar. I got hooked right away.”
