  • Cathy Crowe says:

    Hello, thanks for your article. I question the 1.6 million homeless number. The research it comes from references people who had experienced homelessness, it wasn’t specific to a year. Also, in the future hoping you will reference Canadian research of health – there is lots available.

      Hi Cathy, thank you so much for your comment. The homelessness statistic has now been corrected. Yes, you are absolutely right about the Canadian research. Will be looking into more Canadian literature next time. Thank you again!
