We bring to you our second part of our dive into the homelessness crisis in the 905.

In our previous episode we talked with Michelle Bilek of the Ontario Alliance to End Homelessness, to get the grassroots perspective of the issue.

This episode, we speak with two councillors of two of the largest cities in the 905 to find out what barriers our cities are facing to address the issue of affordable housing and homelessness head on. Joining us are Maureen Wilson, Hamilton Ward 2 Councillor and Joe Horneck, Mississauga Ward 6 Councillor.

They help us to better understand the limitations of what a municipal council can accomplish on this national file.
