Veterans Affairs committee  It needs to be targeted toward local living expenses. The cost of living where I live on Vancouver Island is far more expensive than it is in Calgary. I live in very rural Vancouver Island. I can find rental accommodation in Calgary for half the price that I'm paying in the Comox

Veterans Affairs committee  Without active, targeted funding from Veterans Affairs to deal with housing, it's going to get worse. Some people always say to talk to the local Legion.

Veterans Affairs committee  I don't believe I didn't meet the universality of service.

Veterans Affairs committee  From what I've seen from the data from the Legion Ontario Command, they do a fairly decent job tracking homelessness. There is no mechanism in place where I live, through the Vancouver Island Health Authority. They are not tracking veterans. They don't even ask the question, whe

William Webb

Veterans Affairs committee  There are no services at all for homeless veterans on Vancouver Island—zero—especially for people who have children and are homeless.
