Homeless house strikes fear

Thank you 'die', the way you compared different addictions is 100% correct. Why do we have professionals that stumble so badly in separating those that require different treatment programs that could be beneficial ?
Is the real reason for this because there aren't places or spaces to give them what is needed ?
When the Government (taxpayer's) cover the tab & there is no ceiling or goal to end addictions, JHS & BC Housing have switched directions regarding recovery & love the cash flow coming in, & now it's 'wet facilities - r - us' .

Kamloops appears to have handled this problem properly & provides a shuttle service for those who are getting treatments.

Kelowna runs on 'style & not much content' as long as it looks good & is out of site everything in our Council's world is fine.

I'd like to know what the homeless people think about a place that will allow addictions to continue.
Hate to be cynical but it sounds a bit like the agencies providing Services don't want their client base to vanish.

They can't build this soon enough. We need projects like these desperately. Not just in Kelowna but across Canada.

This would have been a great fit for this property, just as residents had asked...

We can always hope that when Agassiz Rd. is ready to move into that some rational thinking will have taken place & it will be a used as a home for mothers & children ?

I'm not sure if this will make a difference to people's opinions by I just found out Heath House is being run by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Kelowna not the John Howard Society.

Here’s a quote from the article:

Heath House, like other supportive housing projects, is a harm reduction facility where residents can consume drugs and alcohol in their own rooms or use an injection site where help is close at hand, if needed.

Will the junkies living here get free needles and Naloxone kits? My wife was just diagnosed with gestational diabetes, she had to pay $75 for a pack of test strips yesterday. I have no sympathy for those who do not wish to help themselves. Has anyone done a cost benefit analysis of keeping these clowns alive? I shake my head every time I read the news, another handout to those who truly don't deserve it.

Quit coddling them, our society is going to *bleep*, fkin tired of this.
