While many people are concerned about Kelowna’s homeless tent cities, no one seems willing or able to give them shelter.
Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran says the city, B.C. Housing and Journey Home have been working for months trying to find winter emergency shelter space, to no avail.
“No matter where we turn, it seems like there’s one issue or another that makes the site unavailable,” Basran told iNFOnews.ca today, Nov. 27.
While they look, winter has officially arrived this week with temperatures expected to drop as low as -13 Celsius — and colder with a wind chill.
