Crime, Courts & Public Safety

This week’s clip – The Stefanson government is throwing in another $58M for “social housing spaces” and programs but aren’t addressing the root causes of homelessness. We discuss what Marion Willis, founder and executive director of St. Boniface Street Links, told the media – “I maybe expected a little more focus on mental health and addictions and the fact that the demographical face of homelessness is very diverse now. It’s not what it was. It doesn’t divide us by race. I just want to be sure that there’s going to be funding for everybody.” And what about the drug-induced violence?

Kenny has a good laugh about ‘the first stupid thing I’ve heard Gillingham say.’ He keeps laughing all through the ‘not a security force!’ planned for 5 bus routes in particular and comes up with a better name. Why it took months to address a crisis, and horror stories from bus riders endangered since, especially ones that go past City Hall. They’d rather freeze than sit in filthy broken bus shelters. Also- a hint of a strike?

‘One other thing’ – one man, 4 daylight downtown assaults… No need to keep him in lock-up, eh.

And a closing observation about downtown, planning, and wasting taxpayer’s money, sent in by listener and city hall watcher, Kelly Ryback. Who needs safe transit when we can have bike lanes? How the political process disengages voters- and why we work on doing the opposite.
