The Penticton mother would like to see the city do more to address public safety and open drug use, such as increased patrols and the installation of more needle disposal bins. Sidorchuk said she doesn’t know what the answer is, but she’d like to be part of the solution. “I would love to be a part of the solution though, and if we can ban together as a community for those who advocate for safe passages, beaches, fields and schoolyards, if we can all band together and come up with something, I'm sure there is enough of us in the city that can come up with some solution,” she said.
