THINKING LIGHT WITH SHELDON MacLEOD: Too many promises and underdelivery for the homeless

As long-awaited modular units for homeless people on Alderney Drive, a Dartmouth councilor shares his thoughts. District 5 representative Sam Austin admits they made mistakes when they destroyed HRM’s temporary shelters last summer. And the Dartmouth Center advisor says they promised too much and didn’t deliver on their plan. But he says that despite this, they are making progress and still strive to correct their mistakes and learn from them.
