We ask for Calgary City Council and all appropriate levels of the municipal/provincial government to draw attention to the current homeless individual problem and the fentanyl crisis. Specifically, to keep the Calgary Alpha House located at 203 15 Avenue SE (T2G 1G4) where it is.

As stated on the Alpha House website, "The Shelter at Alpha House is open 24 hours, seven days a week and clients are welcome at any time of the day or night. Alpha House is a non-profit, charitable agency that provides safe and caring environments for individuals whose lives are affected by alcohol and other drug dependencies. Getting rid of this pivotal site aimed at helping the opioid crisis and assisting the most vulnerable of our society would be inhuman and cruel.

Looking toward infrastructure and the general public we see the ongoing future development of this area not only against the best interests of our community but also against the city as a whole. We are dealing with record high property tax on small businesses and roads that need maintenance now instead of in the future.

Focusing our efforts and our taxpayer dollars on the wishes of 100 people in this area should not outweigh the views of the other 1335900 Calgarians.

The picture we used is from downtown East Vancouver which is what our streets would look like if places like the Alpha house didn't exist.
