Blast from the past – George Abbott on how the private sector and non-profits can help end homelessness. Something which didn't pan out…
"We have a rapidly rising expenditure line in that program," Abbott said of Homes B.C. "That is unsustainable in any fiscal environment, let alone in these challenging times."
A few days later, Abbott said the private sector and non-profit groups had to step up to solve the affordable housing crisis.
"We need to move away from the notion that only government can supply affordable housing," Abbott told a luncheon sponsored by the provinces' major developers.
Pivot Legal Society's 2006 report on homelessness. Still relevant.
