I am a taxpaying Canadian senior citizen and a Canadian veteran. I have lived in Parksville for 10 years now. My wife and I moved here to be closer to family and enjoy the benefits of the moderate climate and low crime rate compared to the rest of Canada.
Since moving here, we have noticed a steady increase in the number of homeless people who have also come to enjoy the moderate climate. The difference being, we contribute to the community in a very positive way, both socially and economically.
We vote, we vote, we vote, and we place in your our trust that you will not allow this incomplete supportive housing plan to become a part of this community. Wake up! This has only negative consequences, because many more will come.
Does it seem right that only two people should monitor the activities of 51 people with special requirements, including drug addictions as well as mental health issues?
This was very definitely a poorly thought-out decision. As a “for instance,” why wouldn’t this facility be positioned close to our Oceanside Health Centre (where many of their needs will be met)? Just a thought.
I don’t like the idea that I’m one of the “not in my backyard” group, but I find myself very much opposed to the current plan of action.
