LETTER: Take care of our homeless first

Please could someone, anyone, use a little common sense before executing this humanitary act of compassion

Please could someone, anyone, use a little common sense before executing this humanitary act of compassion, sympathy and kindness regarding 25,000 refugees along with $100 million of pocket money.

All I am saying is first give our homeless a roof over their heads, nourishment and a warm bed to sleep in — then go share what’s left of our great wealth to whomever, the world over.

If you really do have all this accommodation and a million dollars to spare then let charity begin here at home with our less fortunate men, women and children.

Surly to goodness and mercy that is not asking too much if you already have pensions in place and disposable income that will change people lives.

Its really quite simple, convert all the aviation fuel that Air Canada is donating to regular gas then during Christmas break while the school busses are not in use get qualified drivers to take them to all the big cities, towns and villages to recover all our hungry homeless folk and take them to this sanctuary that has been made for those other poor souls overseas.

Yes, this would be a prime example of being cruel to be kind, but it’s a crying shame our government doesn’t think outside the box. If you think this is a far fetched idea, it’s really not.
