NIMBYISM. My goal over the next year is to do everything in my power to eliminate Nimbyism in Nanaimo. How do we do that? In the 3rd Community Engagement Session on Homelessness held on July 28th at Oliver Woods Activity Centre, we broke into groups to discuss an issue of our choice - I chose to discuss Nimbyism because at the core of the issue of homelessness is Nimbyism. By keeping "the lines of communication open" we can solve any problem - including Nimbyism.
Tomorrow, Saturday November 17th, THE FRIENDS OF 250 will be handing out information flyers between 1-4pm that describe the 2 Supportive Housing Units that will be opening during the last week of November. The one at 250 Terminal Ave. is being run by Island Crisis Care Society and the one on Labieux Rd. is being run by Pacifica Housing - The most reputable housing company in BC. I hope to see you sometime tomorrow afternoon( November 17th) between 1- 4 pm. Sincerely, Fred Statham.
