Judy shared a link yesterday about the increasing numbers of homeless people, including thousands of children (especially in Florida) yesterday, mostly due to the high numbers of foreclosures in the recent economic downturn.
While Canada has fared a wee bit better in the number of foreclosures we have our own dirty little secret. Perhaps not so secret anymore as an article finally appeared on the front page of the National Post today. By the way, a state of emergency was declared in Attawapiskat over a month ago. This is how we treat our aboriginal peoples. Although much is made in the article about the millions of dollars handed over to help people in the most remote areas of Canada why are the most vulnerable citizens living in tents and other substandard "houses/sheds" with no running water or toilets?
