City's cold weather station

Wintery conditions have arrived in Kelowna forcing the homeless to take cover from the cold.

City of Kelowna spokesperson Tom Wilson said "Kelowna’s Gospel Mission is the city’s cold weather station." 

If people are located in distress across the city, RCMP will take them to the location at 251 Leon Street.

Temperatures are expected to drop down to minus 9 in Kelowna, without any relief from the cold until Thursday. 

The City of Vancouver opened warming centres for the homeless this weekend and the B.C. government said nearly 2,000 spaces were also available at winter and extreme weather shelters that are now open across the province.
