Late last night (October 15), a court-issued deadline for campers to leave Oppenheimer Park came and went.

The group of homeless people—many of whom had lived in the park since mid-July—had shrunk considerably. At its peak size in mid-August, it was estimated that as many as 400 people were sleeping in Oppenheimer.

Vancouver health activist Pete Quily often quips that people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are allergic to boredom.

In a phone interview with the Georgia Straight, the coach who works with adults who have ADHD explained that they’re attracted to frenetic workplaces because these environments stimulate a rush of dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with motivation and reward-seeking behaviour.

According to Quily, who has ADHD himself, dopamine is in short supply in people with this condition, which is one reason they’re more susceptible to addictions. Among those he’s coached over the years have been many chefs.

“Not everyone is into cooking, but if you like it, you get your dopamine fix,” Quily said. “There’s always a crisis and chaos, you have to be thinking quickly on your feet, you get to be creative, there’s a deadline—it’s perfect.”
