Letter writer offers perspective on homeless

Wondering out loud what Premier Christy Clark is thinking

Is homeless solution just duct tape?

I cannot help but wonder what Premier Christy Clark is thinking if her definition of finding homes for the Victoria courthouse tent city residents is opening a shelter until the end of April. What are they supposed to do after that?

Maybe she should try staying in a homeless shelter for one week or try living on welfare for one month. Next winter they will have the same homelessness issue to deal with again, because they won’t have done enough to solve the underlying causes, which are not always substance abuse or laziness.

Premier Clark’s half-baked solution to homelessness is not unlike Uncle Red’s of the Red Green Show: fix everything with duct tape.

Our premier and her government literally fixed a problem with duct tape.
