Dear Editor:

The BC Housing initiatives to help the homeless is a one-size-fits-all disaster. It’s no wonder so many people are demonstrating in frustration.

If you are homeless and penniless, you need food and a safe place to sleep. If you are mentally ill, you need a home with psychological support and medications.

If you are seriously drug-addicted, you need a home that provides drugs and keeps others safe from you. However, if you put all these people in the same facility, you are instilling fear, creating more addicts and making matters worse.

If you are none of the aforementioned but seize the opportunity to sell drugs to the disadvantaged, then you are an a--hole and need to go to jail.
