LOL cute, sounds like you dint make it past high school.
Equality and equity, what that refers to is equality of race, speech, and sexism. Tommy Douglas advocated universal health care, because everyone needs health care to live a healthy life.
The right to affordable housing IS NOT part of equality. That's socialism and communism. You sound like you are from China.
I am not from China. Nor am I a communist or socialist.
There is equality before the law; in the justice system and for access to education. Then, there is the cultural empathy of equity.
That people deserve a fair break. Everyone should be treated as individuals. That birth circumstances don't matter. We are brothers and sisters. This is a Christian impulse that long predates Karl Marx.
I like Canadians (most of them) because of this sense of collective responsibility. Do what you can for the hungry and homeless.
I respect Trudeau for allowing the rush of (screened) refugees into Canada. And, the generosity of main street Canadians towards the refugees.
Tommy Douglas' initiative is extraordinary. A bold leap ahead of the rest of the continent, coming from of all places the prairies. His moment represents the best of the Canadian spirit. Yes, we can.
No. housing is not a human right. Yes, we can take note of the plight of the working poor (renters). Yes, we must find solutions to IMPROVE the situation.
Suggest you pay attention to Vancouver's new housing strategy. Sounds like Vision Vancouver is contemplating the possibility of offending the NIMBY, and risking all. I rather hope that the NDP can jump on the bandwagon. Perhaps, I will vote for them for the first time(?)
