An ambitious effort to provide homes for 20,000 homeless Canadians deserves wholehearted support. It will save lives and boost living standards.
Few campaigns serve a more worthwhile goal. A national grassroots movement is aiming to put 20,000 homeless Canadians into decent housing over the next three years. Twenty thousand — that’s close to the population of Owen Sound in Ontario.
It’s an ambitious objective but, if successful, one that will save lives as well as improve the living standards of people in desperate need. For that reason, the 20,000 Homes Campaign warrants wholehearted support from coast to coast.
