WINNIPEG - Executive policy committee has voted 6-1 against a plan to dismantle the bus shelters in front of Kildonan Place Mall.
Transcona city councillor Shawn Nason proposed the plan as a way to deter homeless people from using the shelters.
Kate Kehler at Winnipeg's Social Planning Council says it was a knee-jerk reaction to the problem of homelessness.
She calls the vote a frustrating step backward with policy makers which does nothing to help the homeless.
