Public Dialogue –– November 26, 2019

Let’s talk about homelessness in Greater Moncton

“We have to invest in long-term solutions!”

“Homelessness is not a choice!” The Dieppe Arts Centre (CACD) is still echoing with the voices of Lisa Ryan, community development coordinator for the Greater Moncton Homelessness Steering Committee (GMHSC), and Joanne Murray, executive director of the John Howard Society of Southeastern New Brunswick Inc. The two women were guest speakers at the fifth Public Dialogue, organized by Resurgo Rotary Club in partnership with Dialogue New Brunswick on November 26. Addressing an audience of over 120 Greater Moncton residents, including Dieppe’s mayor, Yvon Lapierre, they detailed the multiple causes of homelessness and the GMHSC’s various initiatives; they also called on all the attendees to take action. The $2,500 raised during the event will be used to benefit the GMHSC; of that amount, over $1,400 was contributed thanks to the group of deeply committed Grade 6 students at Le Sommet school, led by teacher Dacia Robertson.
