First let me say, I do not want the shelter at the corner of Williams and Yale to be there. I live 500 yards from it. Across from Chilliwack Middle School.
First, I would like you to explain why the city will allow the use of a building not zoned for habitation to be inhabited. Second, it is a storefront, not an apartment. Why does the city fine people for not abiding by the zoning laws? Is the city over and above the law?
I think if it is possible for the city to break the laws it has created to protect everyone, then the bylaw office and officers are redundant. There is no need for them. Why can the mayor tell the bylaw enforcement to ignore laws that were put in place to stop ordinary people from doing exactly what the city is doing? How can the city break the law and get away with it? What happens if there is a fire. Does the city get sued for breaking the law? Does insurance cover everyone knowing there is negligence? Can everyone open a motel without a proper business licence? Next time the fire department wants to inspect our condo for fire safety can I tell them to take a hike as if it is good for the city it has to be good for the public. Why can the city break the law that our tax dollars pay them to uphold? Or do we just plain and simply have a city government that is just as wrong as the druggies they are supporting?
