Recently, in a press conference and a letter to the editor, Liberal candidate Kirk Cameron lamented the Yukon Party has done little over the past eight years to address homelessness.

I agree. But prior to the Yukon Party taking office in 2002, the Liberals formed government. During that time, Cameron was the deputy minister of Executive Council Office, the senior bureaucrat in government and the person who helps set the government agenda and makes things happen.

What did Cameron do about homelessness then? Nothing.

Now that he is running for political office and needs votes he would have us believe that addressing homelessness is a priority.

What was Cameron’s top priority when the Liberals were in office?

It was government renewal Ð and we all remember what a disaster that was.
