We had the opportunity to meet with Solicitor General John Van Dongen about potential funding for dykes along Schubert Drive.
We spoke with Housing and Social Development Minister Rich Coleman about supportive housing and homelessness issues. The Minister seemed to agree that there is a solid return on financial investment in housing the homeless, and supporting them to get back on their feet.
We had our second UBCM meeting with transportation ministry officials to support the community's application for funding assistance for the Valleyview / downtown pedestrian and bicycle path. I have a good feeling about this, but will wait for a definite decision before getting too excited. The Mayor has worked hard on this file.
