To Whom it may concern at BC Corrections:

Housing dangerous sex-offenders in any place other than a secure institution is foolish and dangerous and way too costly.

There is no sane reason on earth why James Conway, a man said to have the intelligence of a seven year old, but who is a real and present danger to helpless little children,….. should be housed in any residential neighbourhood.

This man may have been badly harmed himself in his youth, but now engages in deviant activity that makes him require 24/7 keepers to ensure he’s not out setting fires, or sexually molesting little children.

BC Corrections, BC Government, Elected MLA’s ……. it is crystal clear to the people who pay for all your lofty, exalted positions that this man should be kept in an institution, where he cannot be a danger to a vulnerable community, nor to himself.

But instead you pay companies like WJ Stelmaschuk and Associates, to rent private homes for Conway and his keepers to live, along with paid ‘guards’.  This is all a very, very expensive and lucrative business, on the backs of the taxpayers, who are endangered by your odd way of dealing with dangerous sexual predators.

This has become American-style private prison, obviously for the profit of the ‘keepers‘.

The working folk, who pay your wages can barely find, or afford the rent on homes, let alone buy extra homes, like the staff at WJS can,… to conveniently house their ‘clients.’

Who runs BC?  You, our elected MLA’s seem to mostly evade responsibility while WJS blatantly defies municipal by-laws and sets up illegal housing for clients like Conway.

So interesting that people in the ‘MISERY INDUSTRY’, seem to do so well financially, (like Marc Townsend and the Portland Hotel Society in the DTES) while caring for the needy and broken.

We look, too often in vain to you, our leaders for wisdom and courage to do what is good for the Province, over which you are to be stewards.

Please stop the excessive flow of public money into such dubious business affairs that leech off the people who need genuine help, like James Conway.

Mission Mayor Randy Hawes is about the only elected politician who seems to be able to speak the English language when it comes to the highly questionable business of the keepers making easy money off men like Conway.
