Woodwynn should follow rules like everyone else

Tent village must go says Central Saanich resident

Tent Village must go. Central Saanich council is being jerked around here. This camp is a flagrant and blatant disregard for the law and shows disrespect for neighbours. If allowed to continue to the obvious conclusion the organizers want, it may have brought an appeasement by council to avoid looking bad on how they treat this situation.

I for one have never been enamoured by the project and this camp-out attempt to manoeuver council has done nothing to encourage my support for the Woodwynn homeless project, probably the reverse.

I hope Central Saanich residents will rally together to see that the charity follows the rules and that ultimately both can work together in mutual respect.
