Petition to install publically accessible washrooms in New Westminster
We have a problem in New Westminster. The problem being a lack in restroom facilities. This is mostly affecting people experiencing homelessness. Most businesses will not allow non customers to use their restrooms, and the ones that do allow use are only open during certain hours. This forces people experiencing homelessness to use alleys, streets, and bushes to relieve themselves. Our proposal would be Porta-Potties in certain areas of New Westminster. This would help keep our streets clean, and allow dignity to people living without homes. We hope that you will give this idea great consideration. We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to make publically accessible washrooms available in New Westminster.
