Some of the residents in the area of the Super 8 Motel in West Kelowna have had enough. BC Housing has leased a portion of the motel to house the homeless. But residents are growing weary of the noise and open drug use and petitions are circulating aimed at shutting it down.

The petition targets the provincial government, the City of West Kelowna, BC Housing and the Super 8 demanding the operators find a “better location”.

40 beds have been secured at the motel by BC Housing.
