Dear Ms. Clark,

I was appalled to read about the plight of a vulnerable disabled citizen on Facebook today.

The situation of Karen Norton is heartbreaking.

I am first of all shocked that this poor woman has been living in accommodations that do not meet her needs and is definitely substandard.
Then to discover that she has been waiting for 7 years while the BC government fiddles is the next shock.

What the heck is going on in the BC housing sector? Why can't disabled citizens like this get appropriate housing in a timely fashion?
It is simply not right.

I encourage you to do your job and help this poor woman and others like her. She cannot survive in shelters with her disability. Nor do I expect her to live in tent city in Vancouver. 

I believe the government of BC like the government of Alberta is not living its values. The most vulnerable citizens need help. Housing is a human right. The most vulnerable citizens require appropriate, affordable housing.

Your government is absent in terms of providing affordable accessible housing. I hope you will begin to work immediately on this case. Failure to help citizens like Karen Norton is a red flag to all citizens that government is failing its' most vulnerable disabled citizens. 

Your party is soon up for an election. Your performance on the housing file is going to be the major issue in this election. Failure to help Ms. Norton and others like her will ensure your party will lose the next election.
