Zed Seselja is making sense on asking why churches that want to provide shelter to the homeless can’t because the ACT Government won’t get out of the way:
“Last year in Canberra 3500 people including 1500 children required homelessness support,” Mr Seselja said.
“I’m disgusted that ACT Labor reportedly won’t allow churches to provide homeless accommodation because of a building code technicality.
“These churches are offering shelter and warmth, and that’s a whole lot better than sleeping on the street.
“A Canberra Liberals Government would not impose these ridiculous regulations on organisations which are trying to do the right thing.
“We understand government should partner with the non-government sector to help and not hinder the most vulnerable members of our community.
“I urge ACT Labor to rectify this heartless situation and allow churches to help Canberra’s homeless,” Mr Seselja concluded.
