Standing up for Alberta's Homeless
I was proud to rise in the Legislature to speak about a very serious issue that I feel is not spoken about enough: homelessness.
Homelessness is not just an inner-city phenomenon, and there are many reasons why someone may find themselves without a safe place to live. Despite the fact the cost of housing has been rising faster than most incomes, Alberta was left to be one of three provinces that did not have an affordable housing strategy. That is changing with our government. I look forward to the release of Alberta's housing strategy in the coming months. I'm proud of the work being done to address homelessness and make life more affordable for Albertans.
