The City of Vancouver says after Lion Hotel tenants went weeks without heat and hot water, the Downtown Eastside SRO should now have full restoration.
But tenant Ron Kuehlke is claiming that’s not the case.
“That is so absolutely incorrect. None of the radiators work in the hallways whatsoever, and neither do the front end suites. And we’re talking encompassing at least twelve units. Touch the pipes. There’s no hot water in there. That’s not called full restoration whatsoever.”
The city did mention only three of the Lion Hotel’s four boilers were operational and parts to fix the last one are expected to arrive tomorrow, but it still possibly means another night without heat and hot water.
CKNW has reached out to the city for clarification.
