My next question is for Ms. MacDougall and Ms. York.
One of the critical issues of course is access to safe, secure, affordable housing. We already know, from the 2019 homelessness count, that in Vancouver alone over 2,000 people are homeless. The government's national housing strategy talks about reducing homelessness by 50% within 10 years. That's a long ways to go when we're talking about addressing immediate needs for people who are homeless today, especially women and families who are trying to escape violence.
To that end, would you say it is essential for the government to seize this moment to ensure that there is a significant stimulus package in the budget to address the homelessness crisis? As for immediate action, should the government secure all empty hotels right now to house people?
