I have had a hugely inspiring day, listening to incredibly knowledgeable people from all across the BC and Yukon. They are part of a committee, sponsored by the federal government, who are working to involve the business community in helping solve the homelessness crisis. I met people like Rev Al Tysick from Victoria, who I learned a great deal from over dinner just a short time ago.
Rev Al is additionally full of pithy quotes. Here is a zinger:
"If we can put a man on the moon. surely we can put men in rooms"
Off topic but what are your thoughts on the Moneysense survey of best places to live in Canada and Kamloops getting #99. Is it wrong or is it a tool to improve Kamloops ?
Also, The Y home lottery and KIB scandal. Do you have any thoughts on this ?
Sorry to be off topic but I look forward to your reply.

I was hoping for more information regarding the buisness community and homelessness committee meeting you attended. If you would please email me any info you have on this topic it would be hugely appreciated. As a buisness owner on the North Shore I see the homeless issue every day. It would be great to learn more and take some initiative into helping solve this issue. Thank you
