Very excited to hear about the new Sedrics development proposed by well regarded builder Doug Wittal.
Very sad to hear about the loss of detox beds run by the New Life Mission in Kamloops.
Before any more comment is warranted, however, I think I will need to a bit of homework. Sedrics is potentially one of the largest tourist oriented developments in Kamloops, but a lot of things can happen before shovels go into the ground. You gotta love Doug Wittal's vision and chutzpah! I really hope it works, but Doug would probably be the first to say its got a long way to go.
The loss of detox beds at the New Life Mission could be offset by another social agency being given the contract by Interior Health. In fact, I would bet that Carol Todd over at Interior Health is working double time to try to ensure no loss of services. I know Tim Larose and he does great work at New Life, there seems to be a legitimate disagreement about philosophies here, but there may well be other folks waiting to step in and work with Interior Health.
