June 15, 2022
Last Thursday (June 9, 2022) the City’s Public Works Committee voted to dismantle bus shelters at Kildonan Place mall. Over 20 advocates from groups that represent people experiencing homelessness presented to Winnipeg’s Executive Policy Committee today (June 15th, 2022), making the case that this was a bad idea. Many community organizations working in the sector also signed a joint statement stating dismantling these bus shelters is a bad idea. The statement provides five suggestions for what to do to meaningfully address homelessness.
