WINNIPEG, Manitoba-The City of Winnipeg has announced plans to hire a contractor this summer to dismantle homeless camps and collect used needles from parks and other public areas. They have accordingly put out a request for proposals (RFP).
The move comes as a surprise to some organizations that work with people at risk, including Main Street Project. The director of transitional housing, Adrienne Dudek, told Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC.ca) reporters she hopes outreach workers have the chance to speak with people living on the street before their shelters are destroyed.
