Guss, is from Ontario and has been living in the Downtown Eastside for years.

He only consumes alcohol and has never had a personal experience with drugs. Having lived in Vancouver, he has to deal with individuals who are often overdosed and some have even been forced into consuming drugs. The awareness for safe injection websites is not known to him but the situation has been very critical for a long period of time. Guss believes that there is definitely some hope for improvement down the years for those who consume drugs and for the homeless in Vancouver. Due to a major accident a few years ago , he is waiting to undergo surgery for a knee replacement . Guss is a happy soul and he is beaming with positivity and kindness even in times of adversity.
