**this interview is self-contained, with an intro and extro**

February 2010 is not so far off now, and residents of Vancouver are wondering, many with grave concern, what it will actually be like during the Olympics.

Particularly worried are the homeless and those living in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.

Much of the concern is about the lack of housing. But there are also concerns about the impacts of the billion dollar Olympic security budget.

Laura Track speaks with Stark Raven about how the security of the games is impacting those in the Downtown Eastside.

Laura is a housing campaign lawyer at the Pivot Legal Society. Pivot is a non-profit legal advocacy organization located in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.
