We'll be getting the billion to fund this from the Federal Government.
I think that bill speaks for itsself - we will be building housing units for homeless, in turn hopefully combatting homlessness. Any opinions, critiques, stuff?
Plus Devin, you have not posted the whole bill - you missed the title, and the first sentence. I had, over clause 1, something like "The Pac Gov calls itsself responsible for combatting homlessness in the region" - that's an important part of the bill, at least to me.

Its done. Also pardon my French, but why in the sam hell would they need wifi? If you're homeless that is probably down with buying a Ferrari on your important things list. Plenty of people get along fine without it.

You know that it becomes increasingly difficult today to find a job, find a new apartment, do anything without the internet. How expensive is this, too? Not really.

I guess so, but I guess they also save your history. Plus, we're also talking of rural ares here, where they don't have this option...

The Wi Fi needs to stay in the bill. Internet more now than ever becoming a necessity in our region's lifestyle.

Like some others here, I feel like WiFi should stay in the bill. The Internet is quite beneficial to searching for employment opportunities, which would surely combat homelessness.
