With the measures in place to mitigate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic the Civic Hub is temporarily closed, as are many other facilities such as coffee shops, public washrooms, day drop-ins, internet access, community food distribution, and service programs. But these closures are affecting the unsheltered more than the middle class.

Heather Majaury sent a public letter to ask Karen Redman, the Regional Chair, and Berry Vrbanovic, the Mayor of Kitchener when, not if, regional and city facilities will open 24 hours a day for the unsheltered. She is still waiting for an answer.

On Thursday, 9 April 2020 she wrote a second letter, and reads it for us. You can read it on Heather’s Facebook page: Attn: Mr. Bartholomew-Saunders, Commissioner, Community Services.
