Happy Family

My understanding is that many of the folks whose images grace the building walls were in fact one time tenants of Little Mountain. I don’t know the story of this little family, or where they may be now. Transportation funds were apparently provided to allow relocated children to continue attending local schools. The long term plan is to allow the families first dibs on new social housing created as part of the yet to be revealed development plan. Economic troubles have slammed the brakes on hopes of this happening any time soon – though we certainly can’t have the “eyesore” of old public housing when the world comes to visit our 2010 spanky new curling facility only blocks away.  We can only wait and see where all the cards are ultimately played.
