Helping the homeless is a community responsibility, and the Downtown Courtenay Business Improvement Association (BIA) commends our civic leaders for their initiatives.
We look forward to seeing the details of the proposed shelter that would meet the needs of homeless people in our community.
If there are any opportunities to work with the City of Courtenay, the
Comox Valley Regional District, or other agencies and organizations planning the shelter, we would welcome an opportunity to be a part of the process.
Thank you for your work on behalf of the homeless, for ensuring that the shelter integrates well into our society, and properly assists its clients.
Editor’s note: Mark Middleton is the president of the DCBIA.
