Not too many people on here will agree with this statement, but it is my opinion on the matter. Getting people off the streets WILL NOT eradicate homelessness, it is only a band-aid approach. What society needs to do is get to the underlying reasoning behind someone living in shelters or on the street. Cost of Living is but one of many reasons, we have always had homeless people in St. John's, this is not something new that has arose over the past several years, no doubt the increased prosperity that some are achieving is effecting us all, it is not the sole reason why people live on the streets.
