....the Brother of Madonna! I never,ever thought that I would mention "her"on my blog, however I have to because this is fact is such an indication of how unfairly some people are treated on our planet!
If you do not believe me that one of Madonna's brother's is homeless then read this article:
"In the United States alone, there are estimates that approximately 3.5 million people are homeless and 1.35 million of them are children . (source:http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/teen-angst/201101/homeless-teens )
How can people like the members of Edmonton City council, find money to use for another hockey arena in our city,when so many people in Edmonton are homeless and so many people in our city are living in poverty!!!! It is shameful, and irresponsible for these elected representatives of our city to suggest that they are willing to give more money to millionaire hockey players and the millionaire owner of the Oilers, when there are people in our city who have no place to live because the are homeless. Many homeless people are suffering from severe mental or physical health problems, which makes it even more appalling for Edmonton City council to even think of creating a second hockey arena in this city,before the needs of these people who are homeless, or have other needs, are met! Why do these elected members of our city have the right to decide that the Oiler's owner and his players can have another arena, when so many people in this city are against the idea???!!!
The Edmonton Journal's Gary Lamphier has written a very good article about the Arena question in Edmonton. To read it please click on the following link:
