Spare a thought for those sleeping in their cars this Christmas, the ABC reports that Housing ACT has 336 empty properties which it hasn’t managed to get into a shape it can put the needy into.
Take your time!
I think that the people who do destroy public housing – which is a last resort for many – should not get another house.
Let them live in shelters etc. There are plenty more people out there who would be thankful for a roof over their heads. These are the people living in cars with or without their kids, or on the streets.
I mean how many public houses do you need to destroy to be evicted? 1, 2 or 5?
Everyone is entitled to shelter, but if you destroy it then the onus should be on you to find alternative accommodation.
Why aren’t people being made to be accountable for their actions? Is it easier to cry “hard done by” than admit you’re a pariah?
i still don’t think you’d get anyone to do it. And once you have staff there it becomes more like a hostel. maybe we just need more of those.
agreed, the accommodation would need to come with the job.
Do you support or oppose the construction of stage 2 of light rail from Civic to Woden?
