Letter: Resident calls for mayor to spend time outside with homeless


I would like to know if the mayor of Hope knows the homeless problem in Hope? If he does, I surely would enjoy spending a 12-hour day outside with him. I’m sure Buster will show him around the town of Hope, B.C. for 12 hours.

Then maybe he might help fix the problem because Buster and I have been spending 12 hours a day outside for the last four weeks. Eighty-four hours a week outside for the last four weeks equals 336 hours outside in the last four weeks.

I know if I was the mayor of Hope, all people would be treated equal, rich or poor.
