Thank you so much.
I have two friendship centres in my riding, Sacred Wolf and Wachiay.
I'm asking both of you this, whoever wants to answer.
Last year, I received an extensive package with all the concerns around the lack of funding or the changes to funding. They were petitions from the Wachiay Friendship Centre, in which people specifically spelled out each service they were receiving and each service they had received.
As a service provider, I know that you both do a lot, and you see first-hand the needs of elders. Issues like food security and housing were both in high need in the information that I received. I'm wondering if you see the same and can tell us what the government can do, because this seems to be a systemic problem.
