Shelter frustrates chamber

The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce sounds fed up with BC Housing’s decision to keep the Cornerstone shelter open for an indefinite amount of time.

The shelter, which is located on Leon Avenue in downtown Kelowna, received its third extension last Friday, with the province indicating it would remain open until other arrangements can be made to find homes for its users.

“The chamber and the business community have long accepted the need for shelters and understand why such facilities are essential especially given the fact that many would be forced to sleep outside if they didn’t have the shelter,” chamber president Nikki Csek said in a press release.
