So, it will cost ten million dollars to renovate the Prime Minister’s residence at 24 Sussex Drive. This, while hundreds of thousands of Canadians would be happy to live in a two hundred thousand dollar house, and thousands more are homeless.
I have a suggestion. Buy or build a two or three million dollar home, and add a million dollars worth of security equipment. Then sell 24 Sussex Drive to the highest bidder.
The savings can be used to provide accommodation for the homeless.
