abbotsford affordable housing

Our civic government voted against the rezoning application from Abbotsford Community Services -- a rezoning application necessary to bring a 20-bed housing facility to life. The project, aimed at getting men who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless into a safe and supported environment, was burned to the ground by egos, pipe dreams, and private agendas. Why must our leaders be so consistently blind to the call of justice and mercy? Why must our city consistently violate and victimize the humans living in our alleys and ditches?
