New round of shelter openings in Vancouver

November 30th, 2009 · 7 Comments

The little bird from city hall (aka news release)  just told me that Mayor Gregor Robertson and Housing Minister Rich Coleman will be opening a new shelter for women in the Downtown Eastside this morning.

This is the first of what you can expect to be several announcements along with line, as the city negotiates for emergency-shelter space in various buildings around the city — at least one expected to be in a residential area in the Metro Core. You can expect that there will be a LOT more consultation with the neighbours this time around.
