A GoFundMe was started yesterday in order to somehow stop the housing facility from becoming a reality in the neighbourhood.

“In order to fight, we need funds,” the campaign says. “Arty funds contributed here will go directly towards the fight for the children of Rutland.”

The campaign, which was organized by the “Kelowna Action Group”, says that those funds will specifically cover things like legal counsel and marketing.

“Your support means the world to the children_ of Rutland. It means the world to the parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles in Rutland,” the campaign continues.
