Re: Bill C-304 An Act to ensure secure, adequate, accessible and affordable housing.

Dear Dr. Fry:

Homelessness and affordable housing is one of the most critical issues that face the City of Vancouver. It is estimated that there are over 1600 people living on the streets of Vancouver. As we move into the cold winter months the city is again opening emergency shelters to house the homeless. These shelters represent a temporary response to a problem that clearly necessitates a more sustained response.

The issue of homelessness and affordable housing needs a comprehensive national strategy. In this regard Bill C-304, “ An Act to ensure secure, adequate, accessible and affordable housing for Canadians” represents a excellent opportunity to develop a national housing plan that is going to house all Canadians. I am requesting as my Member of Parliament that you support this bill when it comes back to Parliament for final reading.

Yours truly
Brent Granby
