Recently, media slashed headlines saying that the properties under the supervision of Atira Property Management are not being well maintained. The media even exposed the unhygienic conditions of the housing.
Following the reports by the media, the Housing Minister, Rich Coleman has asked BC Housing to look into the matter. A number of hotel buildings were converted into public housing for the homeless people. However, the maintenance of the housing has been poor then that of brothels.
A resident Elbert Louie shed light over the maintenance of the housing. He said, “In the washrooms, there’s needles on the floor when you go in… There’s a box right there (for used needles) but they won’t even put it inside the box”.
The CEO of Atira said that the tenants most of the time misbehave. He said that they cannot put night bulbs because the tenants steel them. It seems like Atira is underfunded as it is non-profit organization. There is need to do a lot to improve the living of the residents.
There are many other problems that need to be addressed to ensure that no body lives a homeless life. It is hoped that the problems faced by the residents will be solved soon.
