First, I would like to say I am in favour of the new proposed vagrancy bylaw. It’s better than nothing.
Together, we should stand to save our downtown from becoming a total slum that no one wants to shop in or work in. How can business survive with the condition it’s in and a business was just burned down?
No income people are coming here from all over expecting food and housing and hanging out in our downtown. Why should P.G. be on the hook to look after people from other cities? There are people that have to make a living to survive and pay taxes to keep things going, like our hospital. What about our new pool? With this problem around it , will people feel safe going to it?
I wonder if the Together We Stand group has a solution that’s good for everyone?
I wonder if they could do a survey to see where all the needy people are coming from?
Could the old Government building, which is now the Native Friendship Centre, could it not be used to house some of the people as it’s a huge Building with a kitchen and lots of bathrooms? Just a thought.
I do agree we are in a crisis. There is a saying if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.
Throwing stones at our city council that is trying to make everyone happy is not a solution.
