Feeling undervalued

by Manzanita1,
I have lived in Victoria for all but 3 of the last 50 plus years and have resided in Burnside Gorge for the past 30 years. I have never before felt so under valued as a resident of what used to be this beautiful, safe city. This neighbourhood in particular, had suffered immeasurably since the City and Province have put an enormous amount of supportive housing into the area. I no longer feel safe in my community and take every opportunity that I can to go elsewhere to shop and exercise.


Balanced communities are a must and I feel the City has done anything but create balance in many of VictoriaVictoria's neighbourhoods and has alienated the hard working taxpaying citizens who call Victoria home.
