Tiny homes not the solution

Having read Ted Clarke’s article in the March 18th issue of the Citizen, I can only shake my head.

It would appear that Mary MacDonald’s solution for the homeless is to throw money at them in huge quantities. Granted we do have a problem with the homeless and providing housing for them, but rather than spending outrageous sums of money in these tiny homes perhaps an apartment complex would be more fitting.

Maybe then, they could learn the social responsibilities of having something to care for and be responsible for with much less risk of having the investment destroyed. A communal area and garden area can also be incorporated down the road if it appears to be a viable project. All of this, I suspect can be done in a much more compact space and probably at a greatly reduced price from the tiny home concept.

Why would you give a Ferrari to a person who hasn’t mastered even the rudiments of operating a pedal bike? Baby steps are required, not one giant leap for mankind.
