We believe in being on the compassionate side. Homeless people are our fellow citizens who need support.
- Review our policies with this basic approach in mind. Emphasis is on the well-being of the community, including homeless. We do not believe policing homeless constantly is the solution – unless when it is really required.
- Homelessness is tied with housing affordability, greenspaces and other mental health issues. We are committed to work on the root causes of homelessness as a long term strategy.
- We will work with provincial government for more modular housing, even though this is not really addressing the causes of homelessness. Short term solutions are also important.
