Halifax surrenders 4 regions to homeless to live in squalor
'Two areas in Halifax and two areas in Dartmouth have been approved for people experiencing homelessness to camp.
'On Tuesday, Halifax regional council voted unanimously in favour of allowing camping at Lower Flinn Park in Halifax, a green space on Barrington Street between Cornwallis and North streets, a green space on Geary Street in Dartmouth and Green Road Park in Dartmouth.
'"We're going to make a difference. It's a lot of work. And we always have to keep in mind those who need our help, who have no place to sleep. That's what it's about," Mayor Mike Savage said before the vote.
'According to a staff report, the sites would allow 30-plus people "to sleep rough in the community." That's more than the number of people who are currently sleeping in parks, according to the report.'
Put people to work? No thanks. Enforce the law? No! We'll change it to accomodate vagrants and criminals. Focus on bolstering mental health services to keep people off the streets? DON'T STIGMATIZE NEURODIVERSITY.
This country's going to hell in a handbasket.
