Penny Gambell isn’t sure if Lake Country has a homeless problem, but she wants the district to find out and develop a proactive strategy to address the issue.

The Lake Country councillor has brought the issue up at two recent council meetings, which led to a request for district staff to provide council with more information about the extent of homelessness in the community.

While Coun. Bill Scarrow supported her initiative to staff, he asked the question that many might ask: “Is there a homeless problem in Lake Country?”
