For more on the truth of the matter, go to the Homeless Hub to see CWP’s review of human rights ‘moments and misses’ this year, from a housing perspective.  Here is a short blurb from the blog by our ED, Leilani Farha:

Looking to the year ahead it’s unimaginable that things could get any worse. The Government of Canada spent 2013 slamming doors in the faces of homeless and poor people at every turn: the legislature is not the place to defend the rights of the homeless, the Charter and the courts are off limits and the international community is equally shut out. Each of these events is an attempt to render invisible and inaudible the most disadvantaged groups in Canada.”
