After receiving footage and an e-mail about an unauthorized homeless camp set up on CN property, north of the swing bridge, SaultOnline has learned it is to be removed.
A homeless camp with tunnels, sleeping structures and other daily living amenities is located between the yard behind the Machine Shop and the bridge.
A letter obtained from a representative of CN states,
“To whom it may concern:
Please use this email to inform you that you have my permission to remove the homeless camp from CN Railroad property north of the Sault Ste. Marie ONT. Swing Bridge located in Parks Canada Saint Marys Falls.
With a recent increase in vandalism, theft, and break-ins at the bridge, I am sure that this will result in fewer crimes directed against my bridge. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have.”
SaultOnline will bring you more information in regards to this developing situation as it becomes available.
