The Population Problem

The elephant in the closet that everybody knows is there but won’t mention. So many of our problems would be diminished if we practiced population control. But not just the white people, all people.


America is becoming cramped and crowded. Unfortunately along with the crowd comes social illness, which grows exponentially – America needs to reduce it’s population and dial back dependency causing electronics or limit usage and access to people of a certain intelligence level.

Homeless Shelters in Alberta

Homeless persons and families can access emergency shelters across Alberta. There are 3 types of shelter accommodation:

■ Emergency Shelters: means overnight accommodation to individuals who have no permanent address.

■ Short-Term Supportive Housing: means temporary housing with support to assist client movement into permanent housing.

■ Long-Term Supportive Housing: means unlimited stay at a facility that provides 24/7 support to its residents.

In the 2011-12 fiscal year, the province committed $38.5 million to support agencies providing shelter spaces. Funding was allocated to 29 emergency shelters that provide 3,302 spaces across the province. The following charts list these facilities by community and shelter type.

Shelter space usage has gone down in all major cities in Alberta and there will be a reduced need for emergency shelter spaces as more and more homeless people are provided with permanent housing. However, as there continues to be a need for emergency accommodations the Alberta government continues to support about 3,500 emergency shelter spaces in 30 facilities across Alberta.
