In the last few weeks for this podcast, you might have noticed that a theme has appeared. Homelessness has crept into the forefront of discussions here in the 905. Denise Davy is an award-winning journalist and former reporter for The Hamilton Spectator. Her book, “Her Name Was Margaret”, outlines experience of a woman Denise met who had been living for decades on the streets with severe mental illness. Denise has written numerous times on the issue of homelessness and its causes. We speak with her to understand better the issue how we need to reframe our conversations on homelessness if we are to solve it and work to help those on the streets.
Of course, we have to talk about the entitled man-babies/attempt to overthrow a democratic government/convoy or the functionally illiterate in Ottawa, as it has support from the 905. Blurg.
Then on a note of good news, Hamilton has taken positive action towards the homeless issue in its city. Hamilton Alliance for Tiny Shelters (HATS) is hoping to build shelters for the homeless community at the former Sir John A Macdonald School.
