I fail to see how the news is going to help. After all the city people people would rather have them shitting in our rivers then shitting in their streets.  This cupcakes always turns into a big my friend pity party for the homeless on the news.

Thanks, right now the NRO are working on getting it done, they meet on Friday to view, RCMP involved too. Right now we are saying leave it to the goverment agencies as people are in the camp and safety is an issue. We will move if we have too. We did a story with CBC news today will be on tomorrrow at 6 we understand, Wed.Nov. 6
