A group of people who were living under the Osborne Street Bridge are speaking out after Winnipeg police officers evicted them from their camp due to dangerous conditions caused by open power lines.
On Wednesday evening, Kyle Landry was one of the many people living “transiently” under the bridge who was told by Main Street Project they had to move their camp by Thursday morning, due to safety concerns.
Landry told CTV News the next morning police arrived to carry out the eviction.
“It’s absolutely an intimidation tactic,” Landry said. “Do they expect us with no heat and no power to be instantly ready to go? I don’t know what they are thinking.”
