On The Street: How We Created the Homeless
More people are now living below the poverty line in Canada than at any
previous time in our history, even as our society as a whole becomes more
affluent. At the same time, the middle class is reclaiming the inner
cities, replacing old affordable housing for the poor with upscale real
estate. And mentally ill Canadians, traditionally cared for in
institutions, have been moved en masse into local communities which have
neither planned for the influx nor allocated the resources for dealing with
the strain it has put on special housing. The convergence of these
economic, social and health care trends has left thousands homeless.
Barbara Murphy's cogent arguments and lucid style make this a must-read for
any Canadian who cares about the kind of society we are creating.
