Saskatoon homeless shelter says it needs metal detector to address violence from crystal meth

Lighthouse Saskatoon
Earlier this year, the Lighthouse in Saskatoon cut back daytime programming hours for people who need its overnight shelter beds. That’s led to addicts and homeless people camping out next to the building during the day, along 20th Street East.

The Lighthouse homeless shelter says increasing violence linked to a spike in crystal meth use is the reason it needs $60,000 to install a walk-through metal detector to stop weapons and drugs being taken inside.
