Fix the Housing Crisis in Canada

On Friday, January 12th, 2018, I was evicted from my place of residence due to mental health issues. I had an accessible apartment at Carleton University - with help to fulfill my every day needs, including dressing myself, bathing and eating. Since being evicted, I have been forced to move back to my father's apartment where I am unable to shower and have been sleeping in my wheelchair.
In Canada, including my place of residence, Ontario, we are currently faced with a widespread housing crises. Today, I call upon the Minister of Community and Social Services, the Honourable Helena Jaczek, Minister Jean-Yves Duclos and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, to reduce the wait times for subsidized housing greatly.
Today, I propose 'Falum's Law' - a new bill which would force municipalities to find persons suitable housing accommodations when they are in danger. For Falum's law to take effect, an individual must meet one or more of the following criteria:
1) an individual's human dignity is in jeopardy; meaning they are unable to care for their basic needs otherwise
2) their health and/or or safety is at risk by not having suitable housing accommodation, and/or
3) other housing options are not financially feasible or may be unavailable
Sign this petition if you believe that everyone has a right to adequate housing, and therefore support the implementation of Falum's Law in the province of Ontario, as well as the country of Canada. I ask that Falum's Law be considered both federally and provincially, meaning that this law be applicable to all provinces and territories in Canada.
No one deserves to go without adequate housing, especially when their dignity, health/safety, and/or finances are at stake. In Canada, we take pride in our country. We should start helping the most vulnerable who need us the most.
