Jenny in QP: People are sleeping in the streets. End this homelessness crisis now

On February 5, 2020, I stood in Question Period to ask the following question: 

"Mr. Speaker, the Liberals' national housing strategy was announced with much fanfare, yet the Liberals failed miserably. Saying that they will end chronic homelessness in 10 years is just not good enough. People are sleeping on the streets right now.

In Vancouver alone, 40% of the homeless population are Indigenous people, and yet their overall population is only 2%. So much for the Liberals' most important relationship.

We need to have a housing strategy for Indigenous peoples and by Indigenous peoples. Will the government increase the funding for housing, to end the homelessness crisis in Canada once and for all?"
