REVEREND AL TYSICK CONFESSES: ‘We’re certainly not doing everything we can’

‘THERE’S NOTHING OPENING ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY’

New police powers not helpful if shelters not open, says the Rev

 

In a candid admission, Reverend Al Tysick of the Open Door street ministry at Our Place on Pandora Avenue, says ‘we’re certainly not doing everything we can,’ in a CFAX Radio News story, based on an interview with Al Feraby.

Apparently referring to his own new government-subsidized establishment and other services for the homeless in Victoria, Reverend Al said ‘there’s nothing opening on Saturdays or Sundays.’

He doesn’t think much of the new provincial legislation empowering police to escort the homeless to shelters in cases of extreme weather, either.

If there are no shelters open, the law is not helpful, he said.
