LETTER: Ludicrous location for project

Can’t anyone see the big problems arising for the downtown business sector with 20 such folks loitering the streets on a daily basis?

Constructing a 20-unit housing project for homeless men – a low-barrier facility where those using drugs will not be turned away –  only a few steps away from the hub of the Abbotsford business section, is ludicrous to say the least.

Can’t anyone see the big problems arising for the downtown business sector with 20 such folks loitering the streets on a daily basis?

It is grossly unfair to the people who worked so hard to upgrade the area and make it an attractive area to go shopping.

Most of these non-working, loitering individuals, who have no worry where there monies to live from comes from, could not care in the least.

Build a housing project for the homeless, of course. But seconds away from the Abbotsford core business action is not the place to do that.

Surely, there must be land available on the outskirts of town?
