Project Winter Survival: providing winter survival kits to people on the streets in the GTA. Click HERE to read more about it.
This is just another great idea that just shows this disparity between rich and poor in Canada. Why not instead of giving them “survival kits” give them a bed to sleep and food to eat? I know it will cost more and yes taxes have everything to do with it. However it is ideas like these that just push the needs that really have to be addressed: why the homeless are really homeless. Additionally, it does not put them off in any better position then they are without the kits.
A quote on the website carefully pleads to the public for assistance based on the choice for homeless between “life and death.” Great choice of words. Prey on the hearts of the caring instead of the hearts of the logic. GIVE THEM A PLACE TO LIVE!
