Tuesday, February 26, 2019 proved to be a noteworthy evening for us when we listened to Linda Slanina and Michelle Martin share the work the people do with their organization.  There are several programs beyond the service many people know them for - providing a safe haven for women's suffering from abuse.  Their presentation described them, then continued with a detailed overview of the project proposed for construction on Quatsino Blvd.  Where exactly it is proposed to be built, what borders the property, facilities that will be provided under one roof, the shelter for women, office space for all their programs, low income housing, transition housing, a cafeteria, furniture exchange, needle exchange and a play area for children.  They also shared some of the concerns voiced by people living in/owning neighboring properties.   The province has committed 103 million dollars to this project to be used for construction and operating costs once completed.  For the most part, people are in favor of what the facility will provide, just not this proposed location.  A final public hearing will take place Monday, March 4th at 6:30 p.m. at the Luso Canadian Hall.   
Thank you from all of us LInda and Michelle for 'telling all'.
