Am I hopeful? Well, maybe a little. Not that this one letter will change his mind, but that maybe a steady and persistent stream will. I am resolving to write at least one letter a week to the Mayor, Premier, or Prime Minister respectfully, but firmly requesting serious engagement in the housing crisis.
It would be awesome if you would as well. As we know, the outrage machine has become easy to trigger and also to ignore in this age of social media. Maybe a persistent and civilised stream of letters will generate a little movement. If not, there’s always armed revolution.
