Letters: For solutions, start by telling the truth

So it turns out the temporary shelter is quite possibly being replaced with an interim project.

Editor, The News:

April 1st always seems to come early in my little town that now poses as a city.

So it turns out the temporary shelter is quite possibly being replaced with an interim project.

Last time I checked, just before the so-called temporary homeless shelter opened, there was a statistic supplied by some task force that claimed Maple Ridge had about 23 homeless people and some story about it being a myth that the drug use amongst the homeless is exaggerated.

Now I read we have had 141 people that have stayed in or have been referred to the shelter in this six-month period, as well as a reported 40 overdoses have been recorded in the homeless shelter.

I feel we are being played for fools by a number of players.

But, hey, it’s almost April 1st, isn’t it?

For solutions, we must first be honest, don’t you think?
