A Lethbridge homeless advocate in our city says he was arrested earlier this week. Chis Rowley says it took place during the tent encampment clean-up near the Civic Centre Track in our city on Wednesday. The homeless occupants had to pack up their belongings and move on from the area as a fence was also being installed. As BCN’s Micah Quinn explains, Rowley says he didn’t even know what he was being arrested for during the altercation with police.
After graduating from Mount Royal University in Calgary with a Broadcasting Diploma, Micah made the trek down to Lethbridge to work for Bridge City News. He has previously worked at City TV Calgary on the Breakfast Television morning show. He looks forward to connecting with this community, and reaching a new audience. Micah has a passion for interviewing and finding out why people think the way they do. You’ll often find him pursuing local feature stories and hard news.
