I wish that Canada would totally eliminate homelessness specially for teenagers. Everyone is entitled to a roof over their heads. Projects that would protect the vulnerable from family problems, mental health issues, and drug addiction should be in place. I urge everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, color, gender, political affiliation, and religious preferences, to unite and end poverty.
