Manure Dump On Homeless Camp In Abbotsford Gets Apology From City

ABBOTSFORD, B.C. - Homeless people living in one community in British Columbia's Fraser Valley can rightfully argue their treatment by city officials actually stinks.

The City of Abbotsford's manager has apologized after workers recently spread chicken manure on a homeless camp.

George Murray has issued a statement, taking responsibility for how the city dealt with the issue.

He says city workers will remove the manure and work with local stakeholders to find a solution to issue.

Neither Murray nor Mayor Bruce Banman were available for comment on the incident. (CKNW)
