Do No Harm! ALIVe Open Letter

May 8 2019

ALIVEAwareness of Low Income Voices group (ALIVe) has been around since2000 and its role is to bring a positive voice of people with experience of poverty to the public.  Faced with the affordable housing crisis and talking to a number of leaders and decision-makers, the group has sent an open letter to all the provincial and municipal elected officials. They are asking that in every decision made, politicians remember not only who will benefit, but also what problems may be created for the people in place; remember what community will be disrupted to provide space for a new community; how current actions can benefit everyone in the community and not just those who might move in. And, above all, they are asking that whatever politicians do, they strive to do no harm!
