An emergency shelter in Fredericton opened on Saturday after bylaw issues put the kibosh on its planned opening Thursday.

Wayne Knorr, a spokesperson for the City of Fredericton, confirmed in an email on Sunday that the out-of-the-cold shelter at Bishop’s Court was given permission to open after the city and the New Brunswick government were able to come to an agreement on Saturday.

The decision comes after bylaw issues forced a local community action group on homelessness to cancel the shelter’s opening.
