Feeling safer in the downtown Chilliwack

For the past six months or so, it has been wonderful and safe to walk in downtown Yale, especially around the Nowell-Fletcher area.

Invisible are the drug dealers, addicts and sex trade workers. Absent also are the johns who did their drive-by shopping.

The buildings are still boarded up and empty – a by-product of the transients. Perhaps, one day new businesses may be attracted to the area.

Thank you to city council and law enforcers who accomplished this safer downtown.
