Mayor Denis Coderre has caught wind of more spikes to keep homeless people away from businesses and he says the city will not stop until they're all gone.
At least two more businesses with different versions of anti-homeless spikes have been discovered since the first ones spotted outside Archambault caused uproar last week.
The businesses acted fast to remove the spikes with pressure from the city and citizens.
But Mayor Coderre says the city will do an inventory to find out where the spikes are located across the city, and get them removed.
“This is not the kind of society that I want to live in. I understand that some people think this is the best way, but no it’s not, there’s other ways to take care of situations and there’s no such thing as two classes of citizens.”
Coderre says he has a right to get the spikes removed on behalf of public security.
But, he says, if the city needs to put in place a bylaw it will do it.
The opposition is asking Coderre not to wait and to ban the spikes now.
