Dear Mr. Jarvie and people in the Lakeview neighbourhood, I can understand that people in that area are not happy but this is an issue that we have in our society, “not on my front steps.”
2020 especially will push many people to and over the edge of society. Help is needed, and I am not even sure that this building itself is the answer to that question. But what do we as society want to do – collect all people that are “outside” of our society and put them outside of our view and hide them somewhere in the fields? Again, I don’t know if this building itself is the best solution, but we can not always say “Help, yes, but not in my area.” Maybe we should sit back and look in the mirror as Mr. Jarvie says and reflect and say “yes, if this is a way we can help others then that’s OK, and I am concerned about the property value in the area later.”
To The Mustard Seed people, be honest, open and inform your new neighbours about all steps and keep them 100 per cent informed.
