B.C. Housing is looking for a location to put modular homes. (THE NEWS/files)

Letter: ‘Poll Pitt residents on modular homes’

‘We have no government support or health care to support these people.’

Editor, The News:

Re: No plans for any housing in Maple Ridge, say tent city supporters.

Pitt Meadows Coun. Bruce Bell might want to take a few moments to think of who he is representing before he starts looking for locations for modular housing.

Perhaps he should poll the citizens of Pitt Meadows about whether they want this in their community. We have no government support or health care to support these people.

They need more resources to turn their lives around then just giving them a place to live without access to government support, such as rehab, mental health resources, career training, basic financial training and a host of other counseling services.
