A very interesting read
I'm posting just to clear up a point being made in regards to those who are loosing homes due to foreclosure in the US. They have jobs and money.
They just took Mortgages they can not afford and can not make the payments. Many lied on their mortgage applications and they bought homes way beyond
These people will not be homeless as they have jobs and money. They will just move into rentals and abandon the homes to the bank. I don't know where
this homeless stuff is coming from in that regard. Perhaps political rhetoric - you know, lies.
To those of you who do not live here in the US and may never have been here, nothing has changed noticeably. Nearly all of us still have our jobs,
homes, giant screen TV's, SUV's and all that goes with it. The only ones hurt were those who bought homes they could not afford and lied on their
mortgage applications to get them. Even they are not broke. Unemployment, even at 6+% is still historically low. The false info you are reading is
Retirement investments is another story altogether. There will be suffering due to that. People need to take care of elderly in their families who are
hurting now. If you don't, you are scum bags. They raised your sorry butts and paid for your diapers, now take care of them!
Back on topic to Canada. I noticed in traveling through Canada that you don't seem to have public lands. Even in the Yukon everything seemed to be
controlled and then there is this "Crowns Land" thing. I wonder if someone would enlighten me. Why don't you have public lands and access to them?
I can walk off into the wilderness here and build a cabin and live off the land without breaking the law. Can you do that in Canada? Are you that free
or is Canada your constant landlord?
With the homeless, why not just allow them some undeveloped land to camp on away from the tourists and the urban area's. Why does anyone care if
people want to live that way or not? I'd imagine they go to the parks because they have no where else to go? Don't they also have to be walking
distance from government agencies to get food and medical? Doesn't that limit their choices also?
