Poverty

No matter what the government of the day, legislates, regulates or orgistrates, there will always be those in poverty due to the many various reasons that can put a person in a situation of poverty. There is Poverty solutions.
Most solutions for poverty need more than municipal government involvement to solve. Federal and Provincial government involvement and community involvement are also needed to solve poverty.

Poverty is there due to many and various reasons. Disasterous floods can bring an entire nation to its knees and put tens of millions of people in poverty. There are many personal reasons as well. Moving to a new nation, Disabilities, discrimination, recessions, lack of training, and many many more. Not everyone can “Go get a  job.”  Which is a mean and spiteful approach to poverty. I, Dave Dowling knows so and am not just talking so.  I myself have experianced  financial poverty due to personal circumstances, and know and have talked with many who are and have been in poverty.
I, Dave Dowling have argued for years that more needs to be done to solve this issue. (Proof 1 Proof 2  proof 3 show Dave Dowling was talking about poverty years ago) There is Poverty solutions.
Most solutions for poverty need more than municipal government involvement to solve. Federal and Provincial government involvement and community involvement are also needed to solve poverty.

If a city has the will and determination it can do more than lock the poor up and chase them out of town. If a City has the will it can put money and land into solving this issue.  Low cost housing built by the city with revenues generated been granted to the food banks would be a vast step towards solving poverty. Getting the people, communities and province and federal governments involved with  financial resources to do so and it is almost all solved.Cities can help non-profit organizations co-ordinate thier efforts, and communities and people willing to get involved to solve poverty. Cities can also waive property taxes on land used, and if the people of that city have the moral fiber, cities can do more to solve poverty. Elected city officials can even lobby other elected officials and corporate organizations to get involved. Once again, dedicated people running competent organizations with the financial resources to do so, combined with government legislation at various levels of government  is how poverty is solved.

By it self, that is what a city can do if it has the will to do, build housing for the homeless, insure that revenues are going towards non-profit agencies that actually help, and getting people and communities involved in solving this deadly plight and perhaps there would be no people freezing to death in Canada.

Provincial governments are responsible for social services, and other such resources, and the Federal governments are responsible for UIC and other such programs that can help. Both also have more financial resources than a city. This is why solving poverty involves all levels of government.

  1. If one is in school and getting bad marks, does throwing them in jail and fining them make the marks better? No, of course not. what improves the marks is education, studying listening to lecturers, etc.

    And so it is with driving, education is what makes bad drivers better. Photo Radar makes it so only the rich can afford to drive. And photo radar does not really make people slow down.

    Our ssystem must be in pretty bad shape if the only solution people see for issues like bad driving and poverty is more police.
    More police leeds to a police state.

    Are you tr ying to tell me there isnt enough oficers to have a beat cop in a bad crime area? thats sad isnt it, and just another of many reasons to get out there and vote!
