Re: Cliff Ave. getting crowded (The News, May 8).
I have an idea. There is municipally owned property on 227 Street and 119 Avenue which is currently unused.
Put the homeless camp there.
It is across the street from the food bank, bus stop, police station and a block from the welfare office. It is a few blocks from the feeding centre, but they all have bikes to get there.
When the tax-paying public drives by and sees their stolen bike, BBQ or lawn mower, they can just stop and take it back.
Maybe they city could even put up some of the container rooms for sleeping like Campbell River does.
They’re here. We feed them. To throw more money at figuring out why is a waste.
Throw that money at Iron Horse youth house and try to stop the next wave of homeless
Just an idea.
