Gillingham: Leave Bus Shelters Alone

Leave Bus Shelters Alone

WINNIPEG - One of the perceived frontrunners to become Winnipeg’s new mayor has come out against the idea of dismantling bus shelters in an effort to keep the homeless from occupying them.

Scott Gillingham says such a love would simply shift homelessness and addiction problems around.

The city’s Public Works Committee voted last week to remove the glass walls, doors, seats and electrical units from bus shelters on Regent Avenue near Kildonan Place Mall.

Gillingham says he will propose initiatives of his own to address this issue in the weeks ahead.
