Open letter to Whitehorse residents:
I would like to express my heartfelt sympathies to all the families affected by the behaviour and actions of people at 810 Wheeler Street.
It is my hope that the demolition of this property will help bring some closure to a very sad story.
I would also like people to know that my mother loved all her children, unfortunately to the point of endangerment.
I know in her heart she thought she was doing the right thing; she tried to be supportive of better behaviour, she tried to maintain some semblance of decency and order.
Unfortunately she was rewarded with a house full of drugged up homeless people who showed no respect for her, her property or wishes.
This is evidenced in the turnout at her funeral, and the fact they destroyed her home before leaving.
Please, do not enable dangerous behaviour or decisions concerning your children, hold them accountable for their actions; no one deserves these heartbreaking consequences.
I would also like to thank all the people who were so supportive and helped me in this very trying time. There are too many to name, but you know who you are.
Finally, I sincerely hope anyone connected to this house and/or occupants seeks help dealing with your addictions. It is a big beautiful world out there — you just have to see it through clear eyes and mind.
Natalie Stinson, executrix of 810 Wheeler, Whitehorse, and daughter of owner
