Re: "Residents oppose seniors' housing," Wednesday, Nov. 21.
I must say I am absolutely dismayed by the actions of the aforementioned local residents.
Going beyond the obvious, this is a true-tale example of how many are afraid of building and fostering an inclusive community.
The reality is these facilities need to exist. It's a fact that with rising housing prices and overall cost of living in general, people on fixed incomes (seniors or otherwise) are being stretched to their limit financially.
This project, though small in the size, is a progressive step in creating a solution and making our community better.
To be frank, I say shame on these residents for taking a "Not in my Neighbourhood" approach, which in my opinion is very short sighted.
