Author: Interviewer: Barnes, Louise
Registered Psychiatric nurse Bonnie Fournier talks about what it was like working as a nurse in the courthouse holding cells and then later on, operating the DEYAS (Downtown eastside youth Activities) Van with assistant Manny Cu, for 13 years and how she became like a mother to all the survival sex workers. She would dispense medical care, clean needles, condoms or counseling to anyone who needed it. She was like a second mother to many of the people who knew her. She speaks openly about losing many of the women she cared for to serial murderer Robert Pickton.
