Victoria Tent peddler travels on

The Week: April 12-28 — David Arthur Johnston takes his tenting fame on the road

David Arthur Johnston is taking his Right To Sleep gospel on the road — in a cross-Canada tour he needs your help to facilitate.

David Arthur Johnston fans will be excited to hear Victoria’s own Tent City advocate is taking his tenting gospel on the road in hopes of blessing cities across Canada with ways of liberating the unhoused — but he would like your help.

Starting June 1, Johnston will be heading across Canada to teach the legal process of establishing municipal public tenting zones to all with social justice sympathies. “I am a rare character and expert on the subject,” he says. “Presuming that the outcome is going to be the initiation of public tenting zones in every city in the commonwealth, this is news.”

Johnston, known for his Right To Sleep advocacy, was released from jail weeks ago for breaking municipal tenting bylaws. He performed his second 40-day fast this year during his incarceration time. Now a free man, Johnston has decided to move on to other Canadian municipalities in need of a shake up and a hand in learning more about public tenting in his “2012 Municipal Public Tenting Zone Cross-Canada Speaking Tour.”

To help promote Johnston’s tour, or help him find speaking venues or a place to crash, contact him through his self-titled Facebook page. M
