Last week we told you the story of a Tsawwassen woman whose severe allergy to cigarette smoke forced her out of her assisted living apartment — forcing her to sleep in her car for the last two months.
Madison Paage says she was told smoking is banned in KinVillage’s North Court apartment building in Tsawwassen, but after she moved in, says she found around 20 units have smokers who regularly light up, and management isn’t enforcing their own rules.
KinVillage’s CEO told CKNW Madison could always find another apartment to live in.
But Geoff Cowman from the Richmond/Delta Chapter of CARP says that’s not good enough.
“I’m disgusted. It’s a very uncaring, very apathetic attitude in my opinion. I would frankly have expected a little bit more out of an organization that is dedicated to serving others, and I’m speaking of the Kinsmen organization.”
Cowman says a local church had stepped in to put Madison up in a hotel, but is again sleeping in her car.
