Re: BC Housing’s termination of existing Extreme Weather services in Abbotsford
Although it seemed the opening of the modular housing on River Road in Abbotsford would endlessly move into the future, it was inevitable that at some point the building would have residents.
With the building open and people moved in perhaps soimeone could fanswer the question: what’s the plan?

While the actions and behaviours of BC Housing in doing a lot of ‘something’ meet the demand of the public to ‘do something’ about homelessness, that ‘something’ is totally ineffective in addressing homelessness and its related issues. Like a rocking chair, there is lots of motion and effort to go nowhere.
In fact, coming up with actions more pointless than BC Housing’s system that repeatedly places people into housing they fall out of within a few months and/or sends people through treatment with them returning to their addiction a few months after finishing treatment would be most difficult.
