First Speech on M-147

We have what we need to end homelessness. We need a special committee to bring all that together, to build on what is what is working, and to go where we have not gone before. We can make the possible probable and end homelessness in Canada.

Our goal must be to end homelessness. It is possible and it is probable. Is it possible that communities across Canada and North America have it wrong? Do plans to end homelessness not really work? Is it not possible to end homelessness? Could all these communities be flying in the wrong direction? I do not think so. It is possible, anything is possible, but it is most likely not probable.

When John F. Kennedy told his fellow Americans “We will put a man on the moon”, he did not know if it was probable. When he was making that statement he knew it was possible, and he wanted others to believe in that possibility, so the NASA nerds got to work, and the possible became probable, and of course, ultimately, the reality.

We have what we need to end homelessness. We have our homelessness equivalent of the NASA nerds. We have a federal government that is giving us an indication that it is possible. We need a special committee to bring all that together, to build on what is working, and to go where we have not gone before. We can make the possible probable and end homelessness in Canada.
