Opinion: ‘It’s devastating to watch what is happening to our downtown and area’
An advocate from Toronto working in Prince George has brought up the question of all the legal fees we had to pay out for the so-called city-owned unwanted campsite called Moccasin Flats.
I also have some questions as a Prince George taxpayer.
Why did we lose in court? Because we need to provide housing for people from here, there, and everywhere, with who knows what? That’s impossible.
How much did we have to pay out to the homeless for their stuff? How many have been paid? How many do we still owe? And who are they? Where are they from?
So now we have a city-owned unwanted campsite below a residential area. The people in the residential area need protecting.
This unwanted campsite needs to have rules and regulations like any campsite. People need to registered, as there could be anyone in there, like a pedophile.
Prince George still has lots of seniors, and I am one of them, that were born in this city and care about it.
And we are still here. We didn’t make our money and leave as many have done.
It’s devastating to watch what is happening to our downtown and area. More people have to come out of the woodwork and have a voice.
The young mother that could have lost her life did it for me. We need to take our city back.
