So, we have had lots of people ask us where our numbers come from as Canada has the fastest growing homeless population in the world. With over a million people across Canada and lots of kids as well as 1/3 of those being kids under the age of 18 that are homeless. Wear we get our numbers is from many places but let me start by saying that people who search on google for this please do so the numbers the counted was wrong but it was also done 2 years ago. The reason why they wear done wrong as its embarrassing when the government puts the real numbers so they don’t count the homeless in shelters or camping or hidden homeless as well as 5 family’s living in one home. What they do is they go around and report what they see and that it is very sad. We take into account of everything from shelters to camps to everything.
Mississauga, Ontario alone has over 45,000 homeless and you can talk to the future mayor about it Kevin J Johnson this guy will do a lot to clean up that city and help those in need. Toronto has over 100,000 by itself. Ottawa over 30,000, Alberta has over 50,000 to 100,000 Saskatchewan 30,000 to 50,000. The list goes on across the provinces and the growing number of homeless across Canada. I hope this explains what is going on I know when I was in Ottawa the homeless cover all the bench downtown and they sleep on the ground this is something that I thought the world should know. This last winter one of the main Alberta papers were reporting that 28,000 women and children wear being turned away from shelters sadly this reporter was told to remove the post as it makes the government look bad. In Saskatoon, there is a lineup at the friendship centre around the block most of the time they have a hard time keeping enough food to feed everyone.
This is happening in every city I go to and the government refuses to listen to anyone who has a plan. Like we posted before with the Cooperative Community Project they do have a great plan that isn’t a hand out its a hand up and their program would be great but not one party leader from parliament would meet with any director of the (CCP). They did not reply to any emails phone calls and so on they just want the problem to disappear by doing nothing. I ask people to please visit the Cooperative community project website and donate today because it’s not just men its women and children that are homeless and I believe as Canadians we can come together and help our people thanks and God Bless you all.
