"The plaintiff owns commercial property near the intersection of Second Avenue and Ontario Street in Vancouver.  It says that Ontario Street between 2nd and 3rd avenues has become known as 'cash corner' because individuals looking for short term or temporary employment wait there each day to meet potential employers.  The plaintiff says that on weekday mornings up to 35 individuals, predominantly men, gather on the street, sidewalks, driveways and loading bays in the block.  Potential employers arrive in vehicles to negotiate wages with these day labourers and, if agreement is reached, usually transport them to job sites."
