Saying he no longer has the confidence to solve its problems, B-C Housing CEO Shayne Ramsay is resigning.
Ramsay said while a segment of our population faces poverty, poor health, violence, and premature death, others are now unwilling to provide a welcoming space that could save lives.
He says he was threatened with violence at a public meeting by those opposed to a public housing project in Vancouver.
Ramsay also stated violence against the homeless is on the rise in B-C a situation he calls “disturbing.”
