Just plain nasty

I had to put the following letter in here simply because of its sheer nastiness. I will however give him credit for using his real name, at least I am assuming so.

Using tax money to give homeless comfort wrong

Putting aside Mashinter's reference to the homeless as vermin I will however touch very briefly on his comments about costs of housing the homeless. This link, , will take you to a page where you can access a couple of studies that show there is actually a savings to the taxpayer by housing the homeless.

"It costs $55,000 a year to leave a homeless person on the streetcompared to only $37,000 a year to provide housing with support services- Calgary study and Carmha study."

Disgusting. Lacking compassion for our fellow man and showing real ignorance to the facts.
