FREDERICTON - IT'S COLD AND WINDY!!!! A WASTE OF TAXPAYER'S MONEY!!!!
It’s cold and windy out there.
Some of use are very lucky that we have a roof over our heads.
Yes, I live in a small room but it’s warm. I got a computer with Fred E-Zone and cable on the other side.
But some of us are not that lucky and today is one of those cases.
This afternoon, I walked in the Library and noticed a guy passed up on a bench in the lobby.
Seconds later a Commissionaire and someone from the staff woke the guy up telling him that he couldn’t stay inside.
The Commissionaire name is Thomas and he told me that this was the second case this week.
If the guy would have refuse to leave? The cops would have been called and in the drunk tank we go!
Don’t the Fredericton Police Force have better things to do than worrying about the people with drinking problems in this City?
Now this is one case that I happen to be around but what about the rest of the cases in the City?
How often are the cops called because a drunk just wish to stay warm?
Do the calls go up during the cold winter months?
They have to bring them to the Station and do all that paper work.
I say built a little shelter behind the Soup Kitchen and they will stay in that area.
What do you think?
tThey are not bad people. They're still human beings!!!
