I would go back to the original legislation from 1937. And I would say the federal government needs to be held accountable to find affordable housing for the poorest people in this country. No waiting list, no intakes. We don’t care where you were born. We don’t care if you’ve ever gone to jail. We don’t care who lives in your house – you’re eligible! You’ve just gotta fund it.
Yeah, it’s a tall order. It’s a restructuring of a society that has gone so far off kilter. That the idea that people even merit a decent place to live regardless of their income is more foreign to us now than it was in 1937.
