I watched again all of Gregor Robertson's campaign statements made prior to the last election. He repeatedly makes promises regarding "homelessness" and not once that I have been able to find does he use the less comprehensive term "street homelessness". Here's one link, there are plenty more:
By attempting to rewrite history in this way you insult, in my opinion, the intelligence of the people who elected Vision.
"Homelessness" in the sense originally used by Robertson has increased since 2008 with no realistic prospect of being ended "by 2015". Since the closure of the shelters, by force and with arrests, the "street homelessness" figures must have returned to at least their previous level. You advise us to trust the numbers not the spin? Don't worry, I will!
