LETTER: Charge homeless for stolen grocery buggies


A letter to the editor in the Victoria News suggests those with grocery buggies should be charged for stealing them

Victoria city council is negotiating to hire a warehouse somewhere downtown with regards to the storage of hundreds of stolen shopping carts that are being used by the homeless to keep their belongings. The city set aside $45,000 for this project. These shopping carts are $600 to replace by the supermarkets who for some reason or another fail to report that they have been stolen.
