Activists in Kelowna’s Rutland neighbourhood handed off a petition with more than 2,800 pages of signatures against a planned McCurdy Road supportive housing project on Sunday.

Organizer Audra Boudreau said when she gave the petition with signatures from more than 13,000 Kelowna residents to local Liberal MLA Norm Letnick to take to the B.C. Legislature it felt like a weight was lifted off of her…

“It’s a big number (of signatures) and we hope that they listen because there are other vulnerable populations that need help that won’t place the children and the seniors that are in that immediate vicinity at risk,” said Boudreau.
