A brief excerpt from Mike Archer’s piece blistering piece at Abbotsford Today:
Before Mayor Banman allows another Abbotsford taxpayer dollar to be given to the Calgary Flames he should buy every household in Abbotsford a copy of The Chicken Manure Incident. At $5 a copy it would be a bargain and it would change this city forever.
Certainly more than any out-of-town hockey team ever could.
The 44-minute film, which debuted Saturday night in front of, what Jesse Wegenast, of The 5 and 2 Ministries, described as an ‘Over-packed house’ with an excellent question and answer session afterwards, introduces the world to the individual human beings who live in the ditches, along the railway tracks and under the overpasses of Abbotsford.
Written and directed by Kevin Miller, the documentary skillfully turns the homeless men and women of Abbotsford from a social problem into fellow citizens. It also reveals community leaders for what they are. Unable, unsuited and unwilling to do their jobs or show the most basic understanding of what it means to love their neighbours … all their neighbours.
