Abbotsford homeless to be removed from camp following judge’s decision Add to ...

A B.C. Supreme Court judge has granted an injunction to the City of Abbotsford, allowing officials to remove a homeless camp set up in a city parking lot.

The decision was handed down Friday in New Westminster.

Campers near Jubilee Park in the centre of the Fraser Valley city have until 4 p.m. Saturday to leave the lot.

The city took legal action after about 20 people set up a wooden barricade as a wind break around several tents in the encampment.

The injunction is the latest in a series of disputes between homeless residents and the city.

Officials apologized earlier this year for dumping chicken manure on the grounds of a different camp in Abbotsford in an effort to oust the homeless.
