Local homeless advocate remembered Tuesday by Colorado Springs City Council

Resolution honors Raven Canon

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A local homeless woman known for helping other homeless people and who recently died was remembered at Tuesday's meeting of the Colorado Springs City Council.

Councilman Bill Murray read a resolution honoring Raven Canon, editor of The Springs Echo, a newspaper for the homeless.

Canon was found dead March 4 in an outdoor area along Highway 115.  Her cause and manner of death has yet to be determined.

Several people in the audience, along with some council members, stood and clapped after the resolution was read.

During the public comments period afterward, three people -- two of them homeless -- appealed to the council to do more to reduce homelessness in the city.

"I'm here to let my voice be heard," Natasha Harvey said  "Ten homeless people have died since January.  That's too many.  Don't let us die out here on the streets."
