In the end, good always triumphs

I feel compelled to write this newspaper to acknowledge that as a monthly volunteer to Manna Ministries there was a diligent and through cleanup of the lot opposite the Parksville Conference Centre each Saturday, right down to picking up cigarette butts before leaving the property.

It pains me that this centralized location of supply to our people has now been refused and scattered. Many of the services were organized into one place within a specific time frame and now people need more travel time to access these services often in difficult conditions.

I agree along with other respondents to this paper that this issue of driving people out of sight will not solve the problem, but delay and opposition will only increase them.

My compliments to the perseverance of the groups continuing these services in spite of the negativity, opposition and road blocks received. Do we need to increase the difficulty of people who are already in hardship? In the end, good always triumphs.
