I was very pleased to see the first of the tiny homes for homeless erected by the Nak'azdli Whut'en First Nation. Four such homes were built, but it is a start. When used on a much larger scale, this approach to the homeless has proven to be an excellent cure for the issue of homeless peoples.
I think Salt Lake City can claim it was the first to implement this cure.
The size of these homes makes them ideal to be manufactured off site. They are 320 sq. ft. yet enough to include washers and dryers. Surely the various charities in Prince George could each build one or two on some land provided by the city as was done with some of your new Syrian residents - adopt a homeless person, build the house with volunteers, and move it to a suitable site.
Granted, the area selected should have electricity and other services. It does strike me that if the Lombardi Mobile Home Park could be purchased by the city, such would be an ideal location. That might cure two birds with one stone.
For these small dwellings to be used to their maximum benefit, provincial social services must be involved and all aspects of the safety net. It is not just to build small houses, but to service them in a manner that will add to their success in curing the homeless problem. Just having an address for mail is a step in the right direction.
I do so hope the Nak'azdli Whut'en First Nation project is a success leading to more such projects in our city.
