The Town of Ladysmith has made allowances for a more permanent cold weather shelter in the community.
But there was a lively discussion prior to approving the plan for the shelter at BC Housing property at 631 First Avenue.
Councillor Duck Paterson, who admitted it’s a sensitive subject, says he is not a fan of the plan….
Mayor Aaron Stone disagreed…..
Stone says the Town is only allowing for the shelter through a temporary use permit and if problems do develop the permit doesn’t have to be renewed.
