Episode 23: Homelessness, Poverty, and Community – From a Ward Councillor

Homelessness and poverty are complicated issues that so often feel like they’re being overlooked by the people in charge. With the skyrocketing costs of living and the harder it’s become to find deep-cut affordable housing, it’s so easy to feel like everyone’s last priority.
In this episode of Homelessness in Hiding: Our Youth Between the Cracks, host Mya Moniz sits down with Councillor Martin Reid, the new Councillor for Mississauga’s Ward 9, which covers Meadowvale and Central Erin Mills. Today, we get to know a little more about who he is, how he wants to his community heal from poverty, and how he plans to use his position in office to amplify the issues that matter to us.
