Absolutely Grassroots. If we could solve those problems, then everyone would be happy: the property owners, families, police, social workers, and not least of all the disadvantaged themselves.

I don't know if anyone attended at the Bill Strickland talk last night, but the sort of social services agency he runs (if it can be described as such) is an asset to a neighbourhood, not a liability dragging down property values and discouraging investment. We have an extremely benighted approach to the delivery of social services in this country. Not having spent a lot of time thinking about it in the past, I am just waking up to this reality now.
