Fifty two thousand a year.

Dear member of parliament, honourable minister of finance honourable minister of justice,
I went to the welfare office recently in my town and today after three days with no food or shelter received a generous sum of are you ready for this, no not fifty two thousand dollars the amount the government spends to keep one person in prison. I who through no falt of my own have been left homeless and without work hence income recieved one hundred and eighty five dollars, for the month of May, for something I am grateful, but when I read that the government spends fifty two thousand dollars to house and feed one convicted criminal for a year I really have to wonder.
Sincerely Yours,
, Ontario, Canada
