No homeless in Edmonton, the problem of robbery and harassment continues, he proposes a new report published by the Downtown Business Association.
The Association released a report on Wednesday Safety and security Downtown Edmonton, November 2018, based on the entry of 60 participants.
The findings are based on the participation of attendees, such as Edmonton City Council representatives, police service, community leagues, property managers, EPCOR, universities and city residents.
The report said that business owners are frustrated by more homeless people because they use rest, shelters or warmth.
"Challenges for homeless people are growing in Edmonton," said the report.
The report also said that most homeless people are not dangerous.
COUN. Scott McKeen, centered at Ward 6 center, mentioned the possible causes for increasing homeless perception: economic conditions, opioids and less centerpieces.
This is not a fool, what we have not solved this problem.– Coun. Scott McKeen
"If the desperation of our city is more visible, I do not have such misfortunes," said CBC News on Wednesday. "Edmontonians must be there and their MLAs and their parliament members and their councilors must solve problems."
The report also proposes that people are one of the biggest challenges for homelessness and their causes.
Workshop participants identified the most serious problems with housing and economic resources.
The report was spent one day after the mayor of Edmonton, Don Iveson again in the province and federal government called for funds to help affordable homes.
McKeen and other councilors have said they have been for a number of years.
"I got frustrated," McKeen said. "This is a fool, we have not solved this problem. We all have, in a way, but definitely, the government needs to be solved and well communicated."
McKeen has repeatedly stated that police and health systems have millions of homeless people and have mental health problems.
Burglary, harassment, graffiti
The workshop also analyzed theft, panhandling, harassment and graffiti in a few areas.
The business association report has said it is "doing little" to eliminate the robbery.
The report suggested graffiti down to the downtown area last year.
In the case of dealing with harassment complaints, there is little police force or can not cope with the problem, the report said, and people flee in some areas, fearing harassment.
"The perceptions are not always linked to reality, but the individual preferences are decisive when and when they leave."
The association has said that working with community groups to improve security and to list some steps, such as better relationships, more education and reports, to be well-documented.
